Burton Albion boss Clough: How we'll handle Man City Cup tie

Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough has discussed how they will handle their Carabao Cup clash with Manchester City.

City go into the second-leg tonight defending a 9-0 lead.

Clough said, “It will be about little milestones, and pride of course. If we could get a goal then that would be a wonderful achievement.

“If one of our players could score against one of the best teams in Europe then that would be a milestone for us, and a wonderful individual milestone for whoever got a goal."

“The likelihood of us ever making the second leg competitive were very slim. When they come here and take a look around and see the stadium and the club hopefully they will be unable to comprehend how a club of our size has made it to a major cup semi final.

“I saw a statistic on the TV recently that had our budget at £8million. If you took 30 per cent of that then you might be nearer the actual figure. We didn't have a budget of £8million when we were in the Championship."
