Clough focused on Burton

30 December 2008 10:06
Nigel Clough has played down reports that he has been targeted by both Nottingham Forest and Derby County to fill their managerial vacancies. Clough, who has led current club Burton Albion to the top of the Blue Square Premier table this season, has been linked with both clubs following their decisions to part company with Colin Calderwood and Paul Jewell respectively in recent days. Clough's father, Brian, enjoyed success at the helm of both Midlands clubs, but for now he is happy to focus on life at Burton. He told the Nottingham Evening Post: "I have had no contact with either club and I will just get on with doing my job at Burton, as always. "I would rather talk about the ten games we have won on the bounce rather than anything else. "Our club deserves all the credit it can because there is no underestimating just how hard it is to do that at any level. "I don't want anything to detract from that because it is a remarkable achievement. "All my mind is on is our game with York on Thursday."
