BURTON Albion Football Club can report that manager Nigel Clough is staying at the Pirelli Stadium and is fully focused on continuing the job he is so successfully doing.

Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “We are delighted that Nigel Clough has decided to continue the excellent job he has done at the club since re-joining us in December 2015. At that time we did agree that if Nottingham Forest made an approach for him, due to his long association with the club, that we would allow both parties to talk. 

"When an approach was made we gave Nigel the opportunity to talk to Nottingham Forest but now we are happy to report that he will be staying at the Pirelli Stadium. 

"Nigel and his backroom team have been fully focused on the job of keeping Burton Albion in the Championship. I have always said that that job was as difficult as a featherweight taking on a super heavyweight but I know Nigel, his backroom team and the players will give everything to keep Burton Albion in the Championship.”
 Nigel Clough said: "Having started this historic season in the Championship it is only right that we should stay and continue the job of  trying to achieve the miracle of keeping Burton Albion in the Championship. Staying is the right thing to do."
