NIGEL CLOUGH'S BLACKBURN REACTION

24 February 2017

NIGEL Clough was delighted to complete a tough week with a fifth point in three games after the 1-1 draw with Blackburn.

The Brewers boss said: "First half, Blackburn were very good indeed and we couldn't get near them. They will feel hard done by with the way they played in the first half but when that happens you have to hang on in there.

"Second half we changed it around, played with a bit more purpose and Marvin Sordell scored a magnificent goal.

"You saw that we were tired after the week we have had but we rallied in the second half, got something out of the game, and that speaks volumes for the players."

Albion could even have won it with a late strike by Christensen.

"It hit both posts and rolled across the line - I don't know how it didn't go in," said Clough.

"But if you had told us before Norwich we would have got five points this week we would have taken it with those three fixtures. Three games unbeaten as well.

"Tonight it was important that Blackburn didn't gain any ground on us. It is a good week's work."
