BREWERS striker Cauley Woodrow says that it was a real scrap against Nottingham Forest and that Albion needed to battle all the way to get the 1-0 win.

He said: "It was definitely a scrap and we were having to throw our bodies on the line. John Brayford made an unbelievable block to stop them scoring.

"We had to keep working hard as a team and we need to keep getting points and winning."

Woodrow netted the only goal of the game from a free kick - his third strike since arriving on loan from Fulham in January.

He said: "Jackson (Irvine) won the free kick on the edge of the box, Lloyd Dyer said to me did I want to take it and I saw this little gap in the wall. I managed to put it through the gap as their keeper stepped to the right and that gave him no chance. So I'm delighted.

"I didn't hit it too well but that doesn't matter as long as it goes in."
Albion lost both Marvin Sordell and Luke Varney to injury and Woodrow was also struggling as the game ticked on.

"I hurt my knee in the second half but I was thinking we were running out of strikers. But it was just a little knock and I'm OK now."

Woodrow is delighted with the impact he and the other January recruits have made.

He said: "I don't want to come in say we are the saviours as the lads here before us were doing excellent to give the club a chance to stay up. The players who have come in have settled in quickly and it's important for us to help the other lads and do everything we can to keep Burton in this league."
