MANAGER'S VERDICT: PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

20 October 2018

NIGEL Clough was pleased with the work-rate of his team as much as the result, as the Brewers picked up their first league away win of the season against Plymouth Argyle.

Kyle McFadzean scored either side of a first-half Lucas Akins header, as Albion twice came from behind to pick up all three points at Home Park.

The Brewers have struggled to find form on the road this season, with a draw at Accrington Stanley providing Albion’s only away point of the season before this afternoon’s fixture.

Clough believes that the away win is a long overdue one. The manager was pleased with the result, and the hard work of the players to see the game out.  

“It feels great. It feels as though it should not have taken as long as it has, with some of our performance away from home. We should have been better than 2-2 at half-time, because we controlled the game.

“The second-half was a bit more even. They came out with a few chances. We got the goal and it was especially pleasing for us to see the game out as we did in the final five minutes.

“We made some good decisions on the pitch. When you see Jamie Allen and Devante Cole closing down and stopping them from getting out of their own penalty area in added time, our defenders absolutely love that, because it is one less ball that they have to deal with.”
