NIGEL CLOUGH HITS LANDMARK

20 January 2018

BREWERS manager Nigel Clough is set to take charge of his 100th league game as Burton Albion boss this afternoon.

The 51-year-old was re-appointed back in December 2015 for his second spell at the Albion, and today hits his 100th league game in charge of the Brewers.

He went unbeaten in his first five league games back when the Brewers were pushing for promotion to the Championship before successfully crossing the line with a 0-0 draw against Doncaster Rovers on May 8th 2016.

His first game in charge of Burton in the Championship was a narrow 4-3 defeat against his former club Nottingham Forest. The Brewers went on to record memorable victories against Sheffield Wednesday, Derby County, Birmingham City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and now-Premier League side Huddersfield that season.

Clough has won 31 of his 99 league games, drawing 27 and losing 41, with a win percentage of 30.7%.

The Brewers boss said: "It shows how many games we have played in a short space of time. I don't think anyone gave us much chance of surviving last season, but we did. We have had 18 months longer in the Championship than anyone ever dreamed of but, we would like to have another season at least and that's the aim for the rest of the season."
