BURTON Albion are still looking for a first away win of the season but will keep taking the game to the opposition on their travels says Nigel Clough.

The Brewers went down 2-0 at Leeds after conceding a late penalty and an injury time breakaway goal - they had looked on for at least a point for much of the game but couldn't score the goal their play deserved.

It has been the story of the season away from home so far but Nigel Clough believes that his side will get a break on the road if they keep playing the same way.

He said: "The alternative is to shut up shop, sit back and wait for teams to come and attack us but we don't want to play like that. We have been competitive in every game. We keep coming and we keep trying to play.

"At Leeds it was that kind of day where nothing dropped for us around the box, where shots were blocked and that is what it has been like on the road all season. At home we are getting clean sheets and the results but we are playing just as well away from home we are just not getting the breaks.

"We have played pretty much the same all season but haven't managed to get a win away from home.  You have to put your chances away and then not make errors the other end. It's very simple - there's not a lot to work out. 

"It's frustrating but it's also not frustrating. We are Burton Albion at Leeds United. We haven't got the quality that is sometimes required to get that goal away from home. It's more difficult to score goals away from home than at home."
