NIGEL Clough says that confidence can play a huge in a team’s home form, as the Brewers prepare to face a Wycombe Wanderers side that are yet to win on their own patch this season.
Wycombe, who were promoted from League Two least season, have not won a league game at Adams Park since May, when they overcame Stevenage on the final day of 2017-18 season.
The Brewers have not won a league game away from home this season, with the 2-1 win over Shrewsbury being their only victory on the road in all competitions. A 1-1 draw against Accrington Stanley in their last away game was the first point away from the Pirelli Stadium this campaign.
Clough believes that the confidence of the players can play a role in putting good home form together.
He said: “It is a confidence thing. Two seasons ago in the Championship, we were very strong at home. Last season, we couldn’t win a game at home and it was almost the reverse.
“You can look into facts, figures and statistics and whatever, but it is how the players feel when they are out there on the pitch. We could not have gone out there against Southend with any more confidence with the way that we played.”
