CLOUGH WILL TAKE A POINT FOR TEN MEN BREWERS

4 December 2019

NIGEL Clough says it was a point gained in the end against Southend after the 1-1 draw and he now looks to complete the week with victory over Lincoln on Saturday at the Pirelli Stadium (kick off 3pm).

Albion were a goal behind and down to 10 men against the Shrimpers last night but a second half free kick from Scott Fraser brought the scores level and the Brewers looked the more likely side to find a winner - hitting the bar through a David Templeton drive.

And Clough was delighted with the way his team came back after the 33rd minute sending off of defender John-Joe O’Toole who will now miss the Lincoln game through suspension.

The Brewers manager said: “It was a very important point because if we get the three points, even though we wanted the six this week, it’s not a bad return in the circumstances.

“You want three points before the start but as the game pans out you go behind and down to ten men and it turns out to be a brilliant point.

“At half-time, it was a matter of calming everyone down as even experienced international players like Stephen Quinn were  fired up.

"Quinny was brilliant and was shattered when he came off and we tried to leave him on as long as possible.

“They were all brilliant in that second half. Liam Boyce, right from the first minute, that was as good as he has played for us. Jake Buxton led us at the back, and we couldn’t ask any more of any of the players. Colin Daniel has come in and done well again.

"We are sharing the load and hopefully will have a player or two back on Saturday.”
