FOREST RESULT IS BRILLIANT FOR THE FANS SAYS CLOUGH

13 March 2017

BURTON ALBION manager Nigel Clough says that beating Nottingham Forest was "just another three points" in his team's battle to stay in the Championship but 'brilliant' for the supporters

The Brewers have now beaten both Derby County and Forest at home this season to the delight of Albion fans.

Clough said: "I'm sure our supporters will enjoy that with the histories and everything but it honestly doesn't mean any more to us than three points, especially at this stage and how important that win is in the context of the season. 

"But I'm sure all our fans will be walking on air. They would never have dreamt we would be playing in the Championship when Forest were in the European Cup and we were in non league. To be playing in the same league and getting the win is brilliant for the fans.

"Every point we get this season is so valuable it feels like a great point.

Despite the win, Albion remain just three points above the drop zone but did leap frog Clough's former club Forest in the table.

He said: "We are on 41 points now and we will certainly need to get to 50 and even more. What we will keep doing is ticking the games off and that's another one outside the bottom three and a home game again next week.

"With Huddersfield and Newcastle away after the international break next Saturday against Brentford becomes incredibly important."
