The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

BUR­TON have been con­sis­tently top of League One since the turn of De­cem­ber – but they will have to do bet- ter than this to stay there. Old­ham, with a big rel­e­ga­tion fight on their hands and a dam­ag­ing run of form com­ing into this game, de­servedly held the Brewers.

The Lat­ics had only won one in their last five, but you would never have guessed it.

Their only prob­lem was a lack of a killer in­stinct.

If they had pos­sessed that then Bur­ton man­ager Nigel Clough wouldn’t have been as calm as he was af­ter the game.

Bur­ton fin­ished strongly but it wasn’t enough and they will be a bit jit­tery go­ing into to­mor­row night’s game at Millwall. That’s a tough fix­ture and there’s an even big­ger one to come when Wi­gan come to town.
