MANAGER'S VERDICT: ACCRINGTON

23 March 2019

A STUNNING comeback from the Brewers to earn a 5-2 win over Accrington delighted Nigel Clough.

The Brewers conceded twice in three mad first half minutes but got one back from Scott Fraser before the break and then completed the spectacular comeback in the second half.

Clough said: "I thought we played well in the first 35 minutes and didn't deserve to be 2-0 down - the reason we were was two mistakes.

"The goal we scored just before half time was then massively important but we had ten to 12 moves like that and hadn't got a shot off. In the second half we finished them off, that was the difference."

The Brewers drew level with a stunning Kyle McFadzean free kick.

Clough said: "He was practising them in training yesterday. He was there with the mannequins putting them in so it was no surprise to us when he scored.

"That was the one we needed. If it goes much longer than Accrington get encouragement.

"Then you can go on and push for the winner,

"Despite the result I think we have played better in quite a few home games where we haven't won. Today we finished the good play off.

"In other games we haven't had the luck or finished good situations off but we are more confident now and are finishing these moves with goals."

The Brewers are now just five points off the play offs with momentum building.

Clough said: "It might just be a bit too late. But we will try and win as many games as we can and see where that takes us.

"We really should be in the high 50s in terms of points at this stage but we will keep going and four out of the last seven are against top six sides so there is a lot to look forward to."
