Burton boss Clough: O'Hara will be stronger for blunder

Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough says Kieran O'Hara will be stronger for his blunder on the weekend.

Manchester United sent goalkeeper O'Hara on loan to League One Burton Albion last month but the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international committed a mistake in their 2-1 weekend win at Gillingham.

"That's it," Clough said when asked if O'Hara will learn from his error. "There was the one in the last minute, where he punches it.

"It should be a bigger, stronger punch if he's going to come for it. That's why he is here, learning.

"It's brilliant, as a player for Lucas [Atkins] when you miss a penalty or your goalkeeper who drops one, that you get away with the three points. It's brilliant for them."
