CLOUGH SAYS EASTER FIXTURES WILL BE TOUGH

24 March 2016

BOTH Easter fixtures will be “equally difficult”, says Nigel Clough

The Brewers face relegation-threatened Oldham on Saturday before travelling to promotion-chasing Millwall on Monday and the Brewers boss is expecting both games to be a stiff test.

“This is now the biggest game of the season at home to Oldham and in the situation we are in and we are  trying to get the three points. They are battling away and were very unlucky to lose at home to Rochdale.

 "John Sheridan has gone in, won a few games but they still find themselves down there.  They have a good squad and their confidence has improved. We hope they stay up but don’t win on Saturday.”

Millwall comes just 48 hours later which will test the fitness of the Brewers squad.

Clough said: “That’s Easter. It’s Saturday then Monday and we will get on with it the best we can. The fact that it’s an evening kick off on Monday gives us a few extra hours. But we aren’t even contemplating that one yet. All our efforts will go into trying to beat Oldham.

“In all of the last nine games, there is none that you can pinpoint saying you will have an easy ride. That doesn’t happen in English football.”
