te promotion to the Sky

  • 27 Jun
    Nigel Clough has hailed Burtons remarkable promotion to the Sky Bet Championship after drawing 0-0 with Doncaster on the final day on the season. The Brewers needed at least a point to seal an instant jump into Englands second tier, and managed to see out the game despite their rivals Walsall thrashing Port Vale 5-0. Clough originally joined the club when they were playing non-league football during the 1998/99 season as a player-manager and returned earlier this year after the departure of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to QPR. The former striker has now lead the club he made over 200 appearances for over ten years into the Championship for the first time in their history.When I was here before, we were in the Southern League Premier Division, going to Weymouth and Dorchester and having a bacon sandwich at 8am on a Saturday morning and all of a sudden, were in the Championship. It is truly, truly remarkable, Clough told Sky Sports. Burton players celebrate promotion to the Sky Bet Championship We saw the other result coming through and we thought that we could afford to concede and its fitting with all the clean sheets weve had that we secure it with a 0-0.We knew we could get a clean sheet today and it would be enough. The lads have got belief and thats what they can do. The previous two managers Gary Rowett and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink have instilled that into them and thats what you saw today.We were concerned about the winless run earlier in the season in some ways but we kept grinding it out and those points are very important. I just said to Tyler Walker, he got us a 93rd minute equaliser against Bury and that could have been the goal that got us up. Highlights from Doncasters 0-0 draw with Burton from Sky Bet League One which was enough to guarantee the Brewers promotion. Burton go up to the Sky Bet Championship with a final tally of 85 points - two behind eventual champions Wigan - and will be playing the likes of Aston Villa, Leeds and Cloughs former side Nottingham Forest. But he isnt quite looking forward to life in a new division just yet, with the staff and players set for a celebration on Sunday evening.I havent even thought about next season, Clough added. Were going to have one of the biggest parties in Burton tonight I think its ever seen and were not even thinking about the Championship yet.

Terrill Hanks Jersey . Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy, through two preseason games, has produced 69 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. Its a minimal load for exhibition football. But at 5.3 yards per carry this August, and a noticeable burst through the hole that was missing during an extremely disappointing 2015 season (4.1 yards per carry, three touchdowns), is Lacy primed to post RB1 numbers tthis year?Lets take a look at Lacy, along with five other players who have caught my eye at the midway point of the preseason schedule.dddddddddddd There are some studs, sleepers and fliers to position on your draft board as you get ready to go on the clock.
