NIGEL Clough is expecting a good game against an in-form Peterborough side tonight.

The Albion boss said: “They will want to bounce back from their defeat at Gillingham on Saturday. 

“They were unlucky and could have got something down there. They have been in as good a form as anybody in the league in the last two or three months since Graham Westley went in.

“It will be a good game. The way they play is quite expansive, open. It will be interesting.”

It’s another big game for the Brewers but Albion have already picked up big wins at Coventry, Gillingham and Wigan, showing their credentials against the favoured teams.

Clough said: “The common denominator in those three games is clean sheets. That’s the first aim as that’s the foundation that has been built on all season. We will play worse than we have done against Shrewsbury and get a win - and I’m sure we have done that this season. But the first thing is to get back to clean sheets and not conceding goals. 

“Looking from the outside, there were defeats at Walsall, Fleetwood and a draw against Crewe in that little spell – three games without a  goal and one point. But then they recovered and went on a brilliant run. That’s the sign of a good side – how they react to a defeat. That’s why draws are important. That losing feeling is far worse than getting a draw.”
