MANAGER'S VERDICT - BLACKPOOL

2 January 2016

BURTON Albion manager Nigel Clough was "incredibly proud" of the way his team earned victory against Blackpool after being reduced to ten men in the first half.

The Brewers boss said: "It was a remarkable performance and result.

"At half time we could have made defensive substitutions but we didn't want to send that message out. We wanted to still go and attack.

"Some of the football we played in the second half was the best since we have been here.

"It was a great goal from Mark Duffy, similar to the one  he scored against Doncaster as well. It was a lovely finish and a good football goal.

"The spirit in the squad is there for everyone to see. When we went down to ten men and came in at half time nobody was down or concerned. It was a case of 'let's go out and give it another go'. It's a lovely attitude they have got.

"To come out and play the way we did in the second half, to attack, control the game, you saw the crowd were with us all the way."
