NIGEL Clough says there’s still more to come from his rapidly improving Brewers.

Albion inflicted a first League One defeat of the season on Sunderland with a 2-1 victory on Saturday and the Brewers manager has praised another good team performance but says they can still get better.

“There’s a lot more to come from the players – in fitness, ability, decision-making everything as they all just settle into their positions.

“The players are getting used to each other now. This is the sort of thing that happens pre-season and the first few weeks but because we had such a poor one we are still playing catch up.”

Clough also believes the Brewers are adjusting now to League One.

“You get a lot more confidence playing at this level. You get another yard of time all over the pitch.

“We are happy with the system. It suits the payers we have got. Liam Boyce is very happy playing up front on his own. Some players need a partner but he’s happy as long as we get support to him.

“David Templeton gets us going. He’s like an old-fashioned winger who stands on the touch line then cuts in and causes problems for the opposition.

“It provides us with enough attacking threat, but we are solid when we have to be and we can restrict teams like Sunderland to very few chances.

“We would have loved to have played like this in the Championship, but you can’t when you have the likes of Wolves coming. But now you can see them express themselves more.”
