Clough: Punished For A Daft Mistake

At 1-0 down we'd have settled for a point, however having taken the lead and been ahead going into injury-time all three points became one against Middlesbrough on Tuesday in the 2-2 draw.

All of this was against 10-men at the time.

Nigel Clough feels that we're failing to learn from previous mistakes and it is these na´ve mistakes that are costing us, as they did last night with a needlessly given away penalty punished.

"It's disappointing having been 1-0 down for a long time and then to come back and go 2-1 up against 10-men.

We gave a daft free-kick away and didn't defend it and got punished for it. We're getting punished for every little thing at the moment.

But it's part of the learning process and we have to see games out better than that.

There was an element of naivety at times. We went for another goal when we didn't need one and people have got to do their jobs defensively a little bit better."

Clough was talking after the match.
