MANAGER'S VERDICT: OLDHAM

9 August 2017

NIGEL Clough was happy with the performance and the result as Albion advanced in the Carabao Cup with a 3-2 win at Oldham.

The Brewers boss said: "We made eight changes tonight and wanted to get a couple of the lads who had come through the Academy out there in the shape of Ben Fox and Joe Sbarra - who both did very well.

"I thought it was a good game throughout, although the goals all came in the second half.

"We highlighted the fact that they would be dangerous from set plays as they are a big side. We were 1-0 up and there was no need to gve a free kick away. It comes piling into our area and ends up in he back of the net.

"John Mousinho then gives a penalty away and from a game we have controlled we find ourselves 2-1 down.

"We didn't want a lot of the lads in contention for Saturday playing 90 minutes tonight so we were pleased to avoid extra time.

"But there was a lot of good play and a lot of encouraging signs.

"It was brilliant for everyone involved tonight. We put a team out that was good enough to win  and we now look forward to the draw tomorrow."
