MANAGER'S VERDICT: MILLWALL

4 November 2017

NIGEL Clough was delighted with a "hard fought" 1-0 win at Millwall that took his team out of the bottom three.

The Albion boss said: "Whether we deserved to win or not I'm not too sure but we didn't deserve to lose the last two home games. You take whatever you can get in any circumstances."

The Brewers were given a boost by the sending off of Jed Wallace with just over half an hour left. Clough thought it was a harsh decision.

"I thought it was a yellow but I didn't think Jackson Irvine's was a sending off at Hull either and there were two goals there that were offside so we were due a little bit.

"We also get our first real break in the box with the ball dropping for Marvin Sordell and he tucked it away. Apart from Liam Boyce he's the player who only needs a chance or two to get us a goal. We were delighted for him.

"The only disappointment today what was what we did after that when we dropped off and invited them on. We were under the cosh for the last five minutes of added time and we shouldn't be against ten men - we should be keeping the ball. That's down to the situation we have and the results we have got."

The Brewers had an early injury for Jake Buxton to cope with as the Albion skipper got a head wound.

Clough said: "He got a nasty cut after 10 minutes and he will need stitches but I don't think we could have dragged Jake off from that sort of encounter today."
