CLOUGH SAYS TEAM MUST CONVERT MORE CHANCES INTO GOALS

4 November 2019

NIGEL Clough says that the high number of chances his team is creating must lead to more goals on the scoreboard.

The Brewers drew 2-2 away at Doncaster on Saturday but dominated for long spells having more of the possession and the bulk of the opportunities.

In total Albion had 22 shots compared to Doncaster’s 15 and 10 corners compared with the home side’s six.

The Brewers manager believes that should have meant a win for the Brewers with only a clinical edge in the final third denying his team.

He said: “It’s only a matter of time before a higher proportion of those efforts on goal go in so we are going to keep playing the way we do.

“We will also keep trying to tighten up at the back, although there wasn’t much, we could do about their second goal.

“But in general terms, talking about our football, we were very good at times on Saturday.”

Clough now looks to the FA Cup and a visit to Salford City on Saturday.

He will be hoping that David Templeton and Richard Nartey recover from injuries at Doncaster.

Clough said: “Richard’s hamstring hasn’t gone, it’s just tightens up, that’s why we left him out on the Tuesday against Leicester. We have a clear week now, but we may leave him until after the international break and see what bodies we have available for Salford. It would be nice to get it properly cleared up.”
