MANAGER'S VERDICT: BRISTOL CITY

13 October 2017

NIGEL Clough hailed a very good defensive performance from his Brewers side which earned a point at Bristol City.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw the Albion boss said: "We were very organised and there were no mistakes and we posed a threat in the last 10 minutes.

"We were disappointed we didn't pose more of a threat earlier but when you come off the back of two 4-0 home defeats then the priority is to keep a clean sheet and defend as a team and we did that tonight.

"We have now got three brilliant clean sheets in a row away from home and all difficult places to go. 

"I think their supporters thought it was just lambs to the slaughter tonight and expected them to win 5-0 but we made it very difficult for them and Stephen Bywater has only had a couple of shots to save. Then Marvin Sordell might have won it for us if not for a brilliant headed clearance.

"We stayed in the game - that's the important thing. We have been out of it for the last two matches at half-time. When you come in at the interval 0-0 that's a boost and if they push on they then start to leave spaces.

"We have to have that desire and to play like we did tonight to get anything on the road."
