Gaffer content with performance

4 December 2014

Nigel Clough believes the level of performance produced in Tuesday's defeat against the MK Dons will be good enough to win more matches than not in League One this season.

Speaking post-match on Tuesday, Clough refused to be too downbeat and felt all his players deserved credit for their endeavours.

He remarked: "We will take that level of performance at home between now and the end of the season, because we are only a break or two of winning games, this league is based on such fine margins, we saw that last season when we were getting the breaks and winning games 1-0."

"Ryan Flynn was excellent at right-back, he formed a good understanding with Jamal and we like to see Chris Basham use his energy in midfield, he just needs to be more composed in the final third but he isn't the only one.

"Jay McEveley was outstanding at centre-half, Scougs was bright, in fact there wasn't a bad player for us."

The Gaffer also revealed why Basham was withdrawn just prior to the MK Dons scoring.

Clough concluded: "Chris felt his hamstring towards the end so like with Chris (O'Grady) it was better for him to come off and get treated rather than making the injury much worse, especially when we need him at centre-half on Saturday with Paddy McCarthy cup-tied."
