NIGEL Clough hailed a "brilliant" away victory for his Brewers at QPR.
After the 2-1 win the Brewers boss said: "A brilliant performance and a brilliant three points for us and I thought we deserved it for the way we defended, and our attacking play on the break but mainly the way we stood up to the onslaught, especially in the latter stages.
"We have been so close to having these kind of performances but things have gone against us. Today we put a couple of chances away but the main thing was despite not having Kyle McFadzean and losing John Brayford in the first minute they all stood up to it today."
Clough also commented on the speculation surrounding the Nottingham Forest job.
He said: "There is no update at present. There has been an approach and we will sit down in the next few days and talk about it.
"The most important thing was to not distract us from the game today. Now that's happened we can sit down and see what's going to happen.
"Timing in football is never good but I can't stress enough that the important thing today was to get out of the bottom three. We should have had a point at Cardiff but we got three today and we will build on that."
