NIGEL Clough is looking to build some momentum in the final five home games of the season.

The Brewers have been more impressive on the road this year than at the Pirelli Stadium but the Albion manager is looking for improved results starting at home to Blackpool tomorrow (kick off 3pm).

Clough said: “It’s important to do well in the home games we have left and we have some big games with Barnsley, Luton and Portsmouth – arguably the three best teams in the league.”

The Brewers have played well against the better teams in League One and feel aggrieved not to have returned from Charlton on Tuesday with the points.

Clough added: “Knowing we can match a team like Charlton toe-to-toe between the penalty areas is important. There is no other team playing as well box-to-box. Charlton told us on Tuesday that nobody has kept the ball as much, pressed them as much or kept the crowd so quiet.

“What we need is someone to consistently create something in the final third. We are looking for impact and consistency over the whole season and only Lucas has really done that. That’s why Marcus Harness has been a bonus and in the games he has started he has looked a threat in all of them. It’s very hard for someone to do that for 50 or 60 games but if they can’t for a couple of games someone else needs to do it.”

With three home games in a row, Clough is now looking to convert that good play into goals and home wins.

He said: “Those three games are spread over four weeks which is strange, but this is an opportunity to get some points and reverse the home form.”
