NIGEL Clough says that now the Brewers are in the top six the intention is to do everything possible to stay there.

The Brewers moved into the play-off positions with a hard-earned 1-0 win over MK Dons on Tuesday and now have to wait until Accrington visit the Pirelli Stadium on January 25 for the next League One game.

The Brewers manager said: “We know where we are now and our intentions and aims are to try and take it on for the rest of the season.”

League One remains incredibly tight with Albion only five points off top spot and automatic promotion but knowing that while we have a Saturday off tomorrow that, if results go against us, we could easily drop four or five places down the table.

Clough said: “The fact that you can be five points off the top but with one day not playing drop down to halfway again is quite remarkable. If you look at other leagues there is nothing quite like it.

“We are delighted to be in the top six but when you think we are only five points off the top and then look back to the Portsmouth/Tranmere week when we threw five points away in five days then we could easily be joint top of the league.”

But Clough is delighted that things have turned around quickly after the FA Cup exit at the hands of Northampton.

He said: “It was a brilliant few days for us, as we bounced back from the big blow of getting knocked out of the FA Cup by beating Fleetwood, signing two players and scraping a win against MK Dons.

“Six points, two clean sheets, two new players, is a brilliant reaction to the major disappointment of being knocked out of the cup.”
