Gaffer demands professional performance

14 April 2015

​​Nigel Clough is warning his players to take nothing for granted in Tuesday's Sky Bet League One clash with already relegated Yeovil Town.

United head to Huish Park on the back of a point, having come back from 2-0 down at Oldham Athletic on Saturday and the Gaffer insists the fixture in Somerset will be made more difficult not easier but Yeovil's current plight.

Looking ahead, Clough remarked: "It is potentially a banana skin, Yeovil's current predicament makes this fixture a very dangerous one, probably more so than it would have done if they had had their relegation confirmed at the weekend.

"They will be playing with no pressure and out to impress Paul (Sturrock), we don't know what he is going to do in terms of a likely team and formation, so all we can do is aim to produce a professional performance and take care of ourselves.

"Everything for Yeovil is about next season, they will want to build momentum now and rightly so, whilst a lot of players are probably playing for their futures as they try and prove to Paul that they will be part of his promotion push next season."

Clough added: "We know we are edging ever closer to securing our play-off berth but there are still points to play for and we want to finish as high as possible.

"Also managing the squad is important because we can't afford to push the players who are carrying knocks too hard because we will end up losing them long-term."
