Following Saturday afternoon's Sky Bet League 1 draw between Burton Albion and Walsall, Brewers manager Nigel Clough spoke to the press and has discussed his satisfaction as his side maintained the six-point gap to their opponents.

Clough, who recently returned to the Pirelli Stadium following the departure of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, said; "We've kept the six-point gap between ourselves and Walsall and it's another game gone that's not damaged our position. It was a very tight game, nothing in it at all. I don't think it was ever going to be an open game or a free-flowing classic and chances were few and far between.

"Defences were always on top and it was probably going to take a mistake to break the deadlock, but nobody made one. We played better at Southend in terms of knocking the ball about. But we've come out of it with a clean sheet and another point on the board. We got back to what the team has been all about for the last season or two - being solid, not giving away anything and defending properly."
