CLOUGH TARGETS TOP SIX AS BREWERS LOOK FOR ANOTHER HOME WIN

13 January 2020

NIGEL Clough says that tomorrow’s home game against MK Dons is "massive" for the Brewers as they target a place in the play-off positions.

The Brewers are only two points back and could go into the top six with a victory at the Pireli Stadium (kick off 7.45pm).

Th Brewers manager said: “We have won four out of our last five league games and we go into Tuesday night in good spirits.

“It is a massive game for us as if we can get three points that puts us even closer and then we have a ten-day break before another home game.

“We have had a lot of imbalance to our fixtures playing a lot of away games instead of home games and now we are catching up. When you have won the last three home games you have to have confidence here and we can take that into Tuesday hopefully.

“Knowing we could be in the top six if results go our way is an incredible incentive for us and all the players are all aware of that and were looking at the table and checking their phones after Saturday.

“What we have to do is take that performance from Saturday into tomorrow."

The Brewers will have to assess two casualties from Saturday’s 1-0 win over Fleetwood.

Clough said: “Colin Daniel got a whack on the head in the first 20 minutes and we take no chances with head injuries, so he came straight off. With David Templeton it was his calf and maybe a slight strain. We will see how he is on Monday but hopefully Colin will be OK providing his head clears.”
