NIGEL Clough says that Bristol Rovers, like the Brewers, will think they are overdue a break in League One football.

The Brewers performances have been better than recent results and Clough thinks that Saturday’s visitors will believe that as well – with scoring goals from chances created being the main problem.

Clough said: “Darrell Clarke has brought them up from the Conference to League One and people have to remember that. They were on the way down and he got them back up two divisions in a short space of time. They are a big club with a strong team and a few threats.

“They are in a little run where everything seems to be going against them and they are only a win or two from turning things around - just like ourselves.

“We don’t think we have ever had a run of games like this where we have played so well with so little points reward.  The level of performance and some of the football we are playing is of a very high standard it’s just turning that into people finishing chances off.”

Rovers have only won twice in the league this season and find themselves at the wrong end of the table.

“They are a good team, a good squad and have a good manager and they just need that break,” says Clough. “Good fortune plays such a big part in football and we feel we are being punished for every mistake.

“If we are saying one mistake might cost us the game then we can’t afford to make that mistake at the moment."
