NIGEL Clough says the Brewers will take the game to Sunderland tomorrow and continue the same brand of football.

The Brewers lost to a cruel late strike at Peterborough on Saturday despite being the better team for much of the game and now face another tough road trip as they travel to the Stadium of Light tomorrow (kick off 7.45pm).

Clough said: “We need to keep playing the way we are, but we just need to be more clinical and have that bit of extra aggression about us and then we will be winning games like Peterborough not losing them.

“We will play the same way tomorrow and try and take the game to them, create chances and play good football. Sometimes it works and we finish off our chances, sometimes we play well but don’t take the chances and then the opposition put one in the top corner like at Peterborough. But we will go with the same approach as we have in all the games.

“It’s a big ground and a much bigger crowd than we are used to and if you have anything abput you, you want to play in those stadiums and those sort of games.

“In football these days finances dominate everything and there’s no level playing field and the biggest spenders end up at the top. Sunderland and Ipswich are among the biggest clubs in the league and it’s difficult for us to compete, but we know we can beat anybody in the league on our day.”

With three away games on the bounce it’s a tough week for the Brewers.

Clough said: “Playing Peterborough, Sunderland and Oldham all away is as tough a week as we are going to have this season. By tomorrow we will still have only completed 16 league games and ten of those will have been away. To have played so few home games by the beginning of December is quite incredible. There is a huge inbalance there.”
