MANAGER'S VERDICT - BARNSLEY

5 November 2016

NIGEL Clough praised the effort and attacking intent of his players after the 0-0 draw with Barnsley.

The Brewers boss was however disappointed that his team again did not get the result their overall play deserved.

He said: "It was down to a little bit of bad luck in and around the penalty area. We have hit the target an awful lot and the goalkeeper has made some good saves. When one hits him on the head in the 91st minute and loops over the bar, you get the feeling it might not be your day.

"In terms of our attacking intent in the first half, I thought we were magnificent and the effort of the players was superb. The level of  performances over 16 games have been far higher than we anticipated and we will get our rewards over the next 28 games - if there is any justice.

"We had 20 odd shots at Ipswich and at Leeds and again today, by the law of averages you can't keep having that amount without one going in at some point.

"The players are a little disappointed  but they shouldn't be as it was a good point - you can easily lose these games 1-0."
