NIGEL CLOUGH LOOKS AHEAD TO PETERBOROUGH UNITED

23 November 2019

BREWERS manager Nigel Clough has provided his view prior to today's match against Peterborough United, at the Weston Homes Stadium (3pm kick-off).

He says that the squad are expecting to come up against “a very good team”, citing their ruthlessness in front of goal and overall attacking play.

Peterborough United currently top the goalscoring charts for SkyBet League One this season, and despite Ivan Toney being suspended, their depth of attacking options will still provide plenty of fire-power.

Clough said: “We are expecting a very good team; along with ourselves they play as much football as anybody in the league.”

“They have got the best squad they have had for a while, [and] Darren Ferguson knows the league. They will be raring to go.”

The Burton Albion manager felt that the only difference between ourselves and the Posh was their ability to put away chances in front of goal, with Maddison, Toney and Eisa at the heart of that:

“The top three are incredibly prolific and I think that is the biggest difference between the two teams."

The Brewers have had good fortunes on the road this season with only two losses, whilst in October we were charted behind only Manchester City in the number of away goals scored this calendar year.

“We tend to enjoy playing on the road and we play our way. We certainly create chances and try and score goals ourselves.

“I think it will either be a 3-3 or a 0-0!

“But we have to learn our lessons from when we went there on the last day of last season.

“We went there and played very well but they hit us on the break a couple of times, and I think that is what they are very good at and we have to be mindful of.”
