NIGEL Clough says his players are eager to put the poor current run of home form behind then against Norwich on Saturday (kick off 3pm).

The Brewers lost narrowly to Leeds United yesterday but there was plenty to give Clough heart that an elusive home win is just around the corner.

The Brewers boss said: “The players just want to get out there again. They all worked hard and to create the kind of situations we did against Leeds gives us encouragement. We have six points out of nine and if we can get something out of Saturday and Monday we can be satisfied with Christmas.”

Clough believes Albion’s home form is better than the results show, and the run of defeats is down to fine margins.

“As well as Leeds; Preston, Ipswich and Barnsley were the same. It’s just little things and we are beating ourselves. That’s both the good and bad thing. On the road we don’t make those mistakes and we win the game. At home, we have to stop beating ourselves.

“On Boxing Day, we had as many situations as Leeds. Although it was three points dropped it is nice to still be outside the bottom three.

“If we hadn’t won the two games away we might have been a bit adrift now. But we also know that there’s plenty more to come from the players. They can’t give any more. but they can improve in certain things.”
