NIGEL Clough is looking for his team to cut out the mistakes that are costing his team dear.

The Brewers lost 2-1 at Scunthorpe to make an early exit from the FA Cup but, just as in the majority of games this season, dominated for long spells.

Albion had 55 per cent of the possession; had 17 shots to Scunthorpe’s seven with eight on target to the home side’s four but two defensive errors proved the decisive factor.

A free kick conceded in a dangerous position on the edge of the box, and a header back to the keeper that fell short gifting Scunthorpe a two-goal lead at half-time.

The Brewers manager was left frustrated with the way his team handed the initiative to a hard-working Scunthorpe side.

“We are great believers that you get what you deserve and for the way we started the game we didn’t deserve anything.

“When you give away a two-goal lead, and the manner we gave the goals away, you can’t expect to win.

“The second goal was a header that didn’t make it halfway back to the keeper and they aren’t the kind of errors we expect to see.

“Every training session and every game we ask ‘can we improve?’ and ‘can we get better players?’ We keep assessing players all the time, asking ‘will they make less mistakes?’ We are alays looking to improve in any area we can.

“We can get to the right level, as we saw at Walsall, what we are questioning is why we then can’t do it again at Scunthorpe.
