Clough: We Contributed To Our Downfall Again

Nigel Clough was left frustrated once again as we slipped to defeat against Sheffield United on Saturday.

With a 0-0 draw looking likely a needless free-kick was given away from which we were punished and we ended up losing 1-0, something that Clough feels could've been avoided, as could similar things have already been avoided this season.

"I thought we were heading for 0-0 with 10 minutes to go and it was an absolutely ludicrous free-kick to give away near the corner flag.

The ball ends up ricocheting in off Hulse, but if you don't give free-kicks away the threat doesn't exist.

I am very disappointed in the manner in which we conceded the goal because we probably did enough to get a point.

We are losing our voices week in and week out, before games and during games saying don't give free-kicks away, especially in those areas. We are contributing too much to our own downfall."

Clough was talking after the defeat.

Clearly not a very happy man, and rightly so as errors that are costing us aren't seeing lessons learned from them.
