NIGEL Clough says his players have to be ready to take the opportunities that come their way in Championship games.

The Brewers manager says that his team has to understand the “best time to go and win a game”.

“At QPR and at Norwich that was in the first half and especially the first half an hour. When we travel to Bristol City on Friday (7.45pm kick off) that might not be the case. We might have to weather the storm and then we might get a chance as the game pans out in the second half.

“We have to start realising as a team when the point is to go and win the game. You will always have a spell; nobody dominates for 90 minutes in this league so if you can hang on in there you will have your ten-minute spell like we did at Middlesbrough and then you must capitalise on those spells.

“We also aren’t a team who are going to create 20 chances in game so when we create four or five we have to make one count. That was the only criticism after Norwich and QPR that we didn’t do that.

“If it’s back to walls stuff at times, that’s OK, but we still have to pose that threat as well.”
