MANAGER'S VERDICT: SCUNTHORPE

13 April 2019

NIGEL Clough was delighted with a "deserved" 3-0 win away at Scunthorpe.

Goals from Kieran Wallace, Lucas Akins and Liam Boyce secured the victory as the Brewers recorded a fourth win in five games.

The Albion manager said: "We played well again and you saw a big difference between a team who is playing with confidence and one that is fighting against relegation. We know what a difficult situation to be in that is after two years in the Championship.

"But we have to take advantage of that and we came and controlled and dominated the game and deserved the victory.

"It was the experienced lads today who made the difference - Stephen Quinn and Kyle McFadzean were outstanding and got us the victory.

"It was important to stay solid after the break. Games change at half-time and we were 1-0 up and looking comfortable but we knew the opposition would come out and have a go after the break and that's what happened.

"We gave them a little bit too much of encouragement at that point but after about 60 minutes we got the ball down again and started playing; John Brayford especially with some of the runs he made, he was rolling back the years.  There was a lot of space for him and he exploited it."

Clough was also delighted with the clean sheet.

"We looked pretty solid. Brad Collins has only had one or two things to do. 

"That's how we want to play. Home and away we want to control the game and create chances.

"This is how we want to play from the first day next season."
