NIGEL Clough wants all the fans and everyone at the club to enjoy the visit of Manchester City tonight.

The Brewers will play the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final in front of a sold-out crowd but knowing the tie is already over after the 9-0 first leg defeat.

The Albion manager said: “The likelihood of us ever making the second leg competitive were very slim in the first place and everybody accepted that. But we are sold out and we are just going to enjoy it. Our supporters will get to see some of the best players not just in the country but in the world. They might never get to see a game like this here again.”

Clough hopes that being at home will take away some of the fear factor for his players this time.

He said: “We want to take some pride out of the game and the result if we can. If anyone can get a goal against them these are the kind of milestones that they will always remember.”

He also believes that Manchester City will understand the scale of the Brewers achievement in getting this far in the competition once they see the club for themselves.

He said: “When their players and staff get here and see the size of the club I hope they will stop and ask how we managed to get to the last four of a major cup competition. I want them to take that away more than anything else and then they will understand the scale of the achievement.”
