NIGEL Clough wants his players to step up and get the goals that will turn good performances into wins.

The Brewers have had the majority of the play against Ipswich, Nottingham Forest and Millwall but failed to score in any of those matches.

The Brewers manager said: “We only had two or three chances at Barnsley and won the game. We had far more chances at Ipswich and at home to Forest and Millwall and have not won. That’s what football comes down to – both penalty areas - and when you are attacking, someone has to step up and win you the game. But that’s the hardest thing to do.”

Despite another home defeat on Saturday to Millwall, Clough says that the Brewers can take heart from another good performance.

“It’s a completely different feeling to after the games against Reading and QPR and I just wish we had played that well against them.

"The lads are playing in a certain way, which we are quite pleased with. We had the majority of possession again against Millwall, and created good chances. The only question at the moment is who is going to get us a goal.”

On-loan striker Darren Bent had two of the best opportunities but couldn’t find a finish.

Clough said: “Darren will get one. His all round game was good again and it’s great when he’s making the runs and Jacob Davenport is finding him. He needs that kind of service.

"But we keep going and we will now try and get result at Sheffield United next week."
