BREWERS keeper Jon McLaughlin praised his teammates for securing their 19th clean sheet of the season with the 0-0 draw at home to Oldham.

“A lot of credit has to go to Oldham, they didn’t come to us and sit back like most sides do, they brought the game to us. We absorbed a lot of pressure today as a unit and credit has to go not only the back four but the whole side. We pride ourselves on being strong at the back and to have 19 clean sheets already this season is a testament to that.”

Despite only gaining a point against the Latics, McLaughlin says the point could be vital come the end of the season.

"It was never going to be an easy game as there is no easy game in this league but it could prove to be an important point with how tight it is in the league. We would have probably took 7 points from a possible 9 in this three game period so we can’t be too despondent.”

With games coming thick and fast, with Millwall on Easter Monday, the Albion goalkeeper knows they are in for another tough fixture, but has backed his fellow teammates to come out and respond: 

He said: "Millwall is one of the toughest places to go in this league but we’ve proved that we can beat anyone in this league home or away. Having been to the likes of Wigan, Coventry, Gillingham and Sheffield United and come away with the spoils there is no reason why we can’t go down to Millwall and come back with 3 points. 

"We have to show them respect like anyone else as they’ve been in brilliant form as of late, but hopefully we can do what we did to Port Vale last week, by being at the races then putting them under pressure early on and capitalising on it.”
