NIGEL Clough was disappointed with yet another away cup draw for the Brewers as they face Birmingham City in the FA Cup Third Round.

Albion were drawn away three times in this season's Carabao Cup and last year in the FA Cup had to travel to Premier League Watford. That means five away draws in a row for the Brewers.

Clough said: "At least it's not too far to travel for the supporters but we would have liked to have been at home.

"It's a team from the same league and we are both fighting against relegation so it's not ideal for either team.

"We have had a good record against Birmingham and the result there last season helped keep us up but it will be completely different in the FA Cup."

Birmingham are managed by former Brewers player Steve Cotterill.

Clough said: "He will be pleased to be at home but probably a bit disappointed it's against us.

"But it's one to look forward to with no points at stake. We will go and try and win and see if we can get through to the Fourth Round. We always believe a cup run can help league form and we certainly need that."
