CLOUGH WANTS GOALS TO BE SHARED AROUND

11 February 2019

NIGEL Clough says that it’s vital that the goals are shared around the team after Jamie Allen and David Templeton got on the scoresheet in the 2-0 win at Wimbledon.

The Brewers manager says that it’s not just down to Liam Boyce to score the goals.

“When we play the way we do, with 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 you have to have runners and get goals from midfield and it’s nice that we aren’t just relying on Liam Boyce to get them all. It’s the sign of a good team when the goals are getting shared around.

“David Templeton always looks like he will get you a goal. His season has been disrupted by injury and we would love to see him fully fit for eight or nine games and see what we can get from him then but he’s still a dangerous player.

“We played some great football and scored two brilliant goals at Wimbledon and did the defensive side as a team as well. Liam Boyce got so many blocks in chasing down their defenders and every time he does that, that was one less ball our defenders had to deal with – so he set the tone.”

The Brewers had to cope without the suspended John Brayford on Saturday and the injured Josh Clarke but Clough believes he has enough bodies to cope with the run in.

He said: “We didn’t pick up any injuries at Wimbledon and with 15 games to go we don’t need 24 players. Most of the squad is young and we will take our chances on them staying fit. They are young, fresh and eager.”
