NIGEL CLOUGH'S LEEDS VERDICT

29 October 2016

NIGEL Clough was disappointed with another competitive performance but no points for his team after the 2-0 defeat at Leeds.

The Brewers boss said: "I thought over the course of the game we deserved to get something out of it."

The turning point was the penalty awarded against Ben Turner.

Clough said: "There was some good build up play leading to the penalty from Leeds. The disappointing thing for us is when a defender goes to ground.

"Then we were naive conceding in the 95th minute. You have half a chance yourself if you don't concede that second goal.

"The two goals were the disappointing aspects of today and not making the most of our chances and situations again. 

"What we have to put into perspective is that it is Burton Albion coming to Leeds United today - considering all that we did pretty well.

"We didn't play as well as at Ipswich but the chances we got through the game and didn't take were important. They got up a head of steam and we couldn't manage to see it out."
