NIGEL Clough says playing away from home is suiting his Brewers team at present.

The Brewers are being frustrated at the Pirelli Stadium and are struggling to score as teams shut up shop but they can play with more freedom on their travels.

The Albion manager said: “Although we are still taking the game to teams away from home the onus is more on them to attack so we get a bit more space and an opportunity to play. I hope that’s the case in the next two league games.”

The Brewers travel to Charlton on Tuesday but before then face Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on Friday.

The Sky Blues are doing well on the pitch but have off the field issues surrounding their future at the Ricoh Arena.

Clough said: “The club is too good and too big to go under. It will survive in some shape or form and hopefully they will get it sorted. All the time I was growing up and playing Coventry were in the top  division at Highfield Road and the city can support a top flight club.

“There are clubs far bigger than us who are struggling one way or another and losing their way at the moment. It doesn’t take much for a club to go into decline. You read about Notts County, Bolton and Blackpool and there are a lot of clubs at the moment who seem to be having problems.

“At Coventry it needs someone to come in with a five-year plan and to run it properly. They need to sort the stadium, get somewhere to play and take it from there.”
