The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BUR­TON boss Nigel Clough has com­mended his play­ers’ will­ing­ness to play in a va­ri­ety of po­si­tions in re­cent weeks.

In­juries and for­ma­tion changes have led to 25year-old cen­tre-backs Tom Flana­gan and Tom Nay­lor turn­ing out at full-back, and striker Marvin Sordell, 26, at right wing-back.

“It em­pha­sises the flex­i­bil­ity and ver­sa­til­ity in the squad,” Clough said. “It’s that ac­cep­tance by play­ers that they’re go­ing to have to do it in this team.

“They can’t al­ways play their pre­ferred po­si­tion. They’ve got to say ‘I’m happy to be in the team and, wher­ever I’m asked to do a job, I’ll get on with it’.”
