CLOUGH PRAISES STRIKERS AFTER BIRMINGHAM VICTORY

24 October 2016

NIGEl Clough has praised his strike force after the 2-0 win over Birmingham.

Goals from Lloyd Dyer and Jamie Ward secured the victory and Clough also praised Chris O'Grady for his major contribution to the three points.

He said: "Chris was magnificent for us tonight. He's had a shot just wide and didn't score but his all round play again was excellent.

"Jamie Ward has made one and scored one - that's the nice balance we have between them at the moment.

"Lloyd was very disappointed with the two chances he had at Ipswich that he hadn't put one of them away or hit the target with them. Against his old club he took his goal very well.

"Having played so well in the previous two games and not got a win the question was could we keep the standard that high? Do the players feel a bit sorry for themselves after playing well and picking up just one point and not having scored? But we told them to keep playing and they are such an honest group they did just that."
