NIGEL Clough is looking forward to being back at the Pirelli Stadium after a tough week on the road.

After three away games in a row Albion face Wycombe on Boxing Day and Plymouth on Saturday.

Clough said: “Our home performances have been excellent, so we are looking forward to the two games. We feel we owe Wycombe one as well from when we were down there.”

Clough says his team also need to learn how to grind out draws if they can’t find a way to win a match.

“We aren’t getting enough draws. That’s not being negative as we are always looking to win matches but it’s important to try and go a few games unbeaten and to keep getting that point. If you get a couple of 0-0s and then you can look to add victories to that.

“We try and win every game and you can see that from the way we play but we have to get more draws, especially away from home.

“When you are losing too many games like we are you need an odd draw to break it up.”

Clough hopes to have David Templeton back in the squad for the Boxing Day home game against Wycombe (kick off 3pm).

“We will see how he is in training today, but his shoulder isn’t as bad as we first feared. We might get him back on the bench.”

The news isn’t so good concerning Kyle McFadzean’s abdominal injury.

Clough said: “it’s a very unusual injury, freakish really and we have no timescale on it.”
