NIGEL Clough said he thought it was fitting that the Brewers clinched promotion with a clean sheet.

The Brewers boss said: "I know they went down to nine or ten men in the end but it was a good solid performance. The only difference was that we didn't nick the odd goal.

"When I first came here 17 and a half years ago we had a baby and he's 18 today-  that's how things change. We used to get 400 or 500 in the Southern League, there was  more than 3,000 fans here celebrating today.

"It's absolutely remarkable in football terms to come from where we were all those years ago and to achieve this.

"Next season we are playing former European champions in Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. It's unbelievable.

"But we have to pay tribute to the two previous managers as well. A lot of these players were Gary Rowett's and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink continued the work. It really helps when you have a lot of players who are hard working and there's a lot of honesty in the dressing room."
