MANAGER'S VERDICT: NOTTINGHAM FOREST

17 February 2018

NIGEL Clough said it was two points dropped against Nottingham Forest but he was pleased with a second consecutive clean sheet and another point on the board.

The Brewers manager said: "I was pleased with the way we played and went about it. It was difficult in some ways as when they went down to ten men they put everyone behind the ball. 

"It's a highly unusual situation for us to have the majority of the possession and dominate the game the way we did. Then you need a little bit of quality, a cross or a finish or something, and that's what we have been lacking all season.

"We had four or five very good situations today and we just needed one to go in. But there were good performances and play today and if you compare it to how we were against Reading then it looks a comletely different team."

The Brewers maybe without John Brayford for the trip to Barnsley on Tuesday after the defender limped off.

Clough said: "We lost another full back. He felt his calf and we will have to see how he is on Monday and take it from there. But that's the third defender we have out with a calf strain.

"But we are in good spirits, We should have won at Ipswich and again today but we go to Barnsley and look for a result on Tuesday night. There are six teams in it at the bottom and we have the opportunity to gain some ground."
