NIGEL Clough is targeting set pieces as a way to get his team more goals.

The Brewers haven’t scored in five games and the first team squad were doing a double training session today with the emphasis on improving goal scoring opportunities from set plays.

Clough said: “We are doing a double session to try and improve on one or two things. We need to do better with our set plays. It’s not a case of looking around and asking who is going to get a goal you have to do it for yourself. Individually and collectively we have to do a little bit more.

“When it’s set plays I think a defender has more chance of scoring than the forwards. When we are sending McFadzean, Buxton and Turner into the penalty area and we have had 50 odd corners this season we are expecting to get some kind of return on them.

“The delivery has been OK. We want to improve on that. We don’t have anyone nailed on as our set play taker unfortunately but there is still enough balls going into the box. We work on set pieces any way but I think it’s time we did a bit more.”

Clough is hoping it will pay dividends against Ipswich on Saturday and that his team can get back to winning ways.

He said: “We are not too far away - we need a break. And everyone needs to step up, whoever it is.”
