CLOUGH SAYS MORE OF THE SAME IS NEEDED TO SECURE SURVIVAL

3 April 2017

NIGEL Clough says that the do or die spirit that secured a 1-0 win at Huddersfield will be needed throughout the last seven games.

The Brewers took a valuable three points to move four clear of the relegation zone but the Albion boss is not taking anything for granted.

He said: "That sort of desire and to put your bodies on the line is important.

"The result at Huddersfield might not be enough but what we do know is that we are going to fight and scrap. We are nowhere near safe. We have Newcastle ad Aston Villa coming up and we are not going to take anything for granted.

"We said anything we could take out of the three games starting with Huddersfield would be a bonus and we have already got three on the board. If we can nick another point or two then brilliant."

Jackson Irvine got the winner at Huddersfield after returning from international duty with Australia.

Clough said: "He wanted to start but he has played two games, flown to Iran, Sydney and back. We told him that he might not have made that run at the end to score if he had started the game.

"You don't want to leave one of your best players out but he has been tired coming back after international breaks before even when he hasn't played. This time he has played twice and that came into our thinking."
