MANAGER'S VERDICT: LUTON

27 April 2019

NIGEL Clough hailed a "good, solid team performance against the best in the league" as the Brewers came from behind to beat Luton 2-1 in the final home game of the season.

The Albion manager said: "We were unlucky to be 1-0 down at half-time as their goal was about their first attack. We then had to drag ourselves back into the game and Lucas has got us two goals and I thought the second one was a brilliant team goal to get us the win.

"But I don't think that was any more than we deserved.

"We upped it that little bit in the second half and that made the difference. 

"John Brayford has bombed up and down that right wing today and has made both goals; the first by winning a header and the second with a brilliant cross. He will need a few days to recover but hopefully he will be doing that again for us next week.

"It doesn't matter that we had nothing to play for. There is three points at stake and it's about pride and integrity and you keep giving everything right to the last game.

"When we get on the front foot in the second half we stemmed their flow and getting the goal when we did was ideal and that lifted everyone and set us up to go for the winner.

"Our two centre halves, as well as they defended, I was also impressed with them on the ball. In these windy conditions you have to keep it on the floor and play it out from the back. 

"It was a good all round team performance."
