NIGEL Clough is targeting a first away win of the season at Wycombe as the Brewers look to bounce back from a home defeat to Southend.

The Albion manager said: “We have no away wins this season, so we are due one. Wycombe have no wins at home, so they are overdue one as well.

“We will try and keep our level of performance high and then we think we will get the points.”

Although Wycombe have only won one game this season they have lost fewer games than the Brewers, having drawn six times in 11 games.

Clough said: “They are proving difficult to beat – that’s the honesty and fighting spirit that Gareth Ainsworth has got down there and the momentum from coming up from League One. They are fighting and scrapping for absolutely everything which is why they aren’t losing many.

“It’s a long hard season but when you do get promoted the first few months are special – playing in a  league you didn’t expect to. That’s how they are getting results and I’m sure they will see us as a good chance of getting that first home win.”

Clough does believe that the Brewers are close to handing out a hammering as at times the play is deserving of a deluge of goals. That should have been the case in the first half at Southend but in the end the Brewers lost a match they dominated.

Clough said: “They are mixed emotions – I don’t think we can play much better than we did in the first half. It’s the best we have played by some distance for some time. A couple of attacks, they punish us twice and we end up with nothing instead of a comfortable home victory.

“We have to pick ourselves up now and try and get a victory on Saturday. It would be nice for us to go somewhere for once only have thee or four chances but score two goals.”
