MANAGER'S VERDICT: DONCASTER (AWAY)

2 November 2019

NIGEL Clough thought his team deserved to have taken all three points at Doncaster after creating the bulk of the chances in the 2-2 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium.

A David Templeton strike and a Lucas Akins' penalty gave Albion the lead twice but the home side responded swiftly on each occasion.

The Brewers manager said: "We think of it as two points dropped really when we look at the missed opportunities and chances throughout the game. Before we scored we had created numerous chances which we should have finished.

"We can never begrudge a point away from home, especially coming to a very good side like Doncaster but we got ahead twice and couldn't hang onto the lead for any period of time. That was the other disappointing thing.

"Their second goal was certainly fortuitous. Kieran O'Hara has come out and smothered it brilliantly but it has rebounded and gone into an empty net. That was a large slice of misfortune and even for the first goal Kieran has saved a couple of times but it has gone back to their lad and he has poked it in.

"But over the course of the game, if you have 20-odd shots away from home and control it for long periods, you want to go on and win it.

"There's not too much more we can do apart from concentrate on better finishing."

Albion had two make two substitutions before the second half started.

Clough said: "David Templeton felt his ankle and couldn't continue and Richard Nartey felt his hamstring in the first half. That does really restrict you in terms of what you can do in the second half."
