Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Darren England blew the final whistle, Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough explained.

‘We missed our situations and chances in the first half to go ahead. It might have been a different game then. We were on top for the first 45 minutes and you have got to make that count. Even teams that are below you in the league, with the quality that they have will hurt you in the second half as they did.’

Sunderland manager Simon Coleman in his comparitive interview explained.

‘In the position we are in you don’t care where wins come from. They have got to come and come frequently and consistently so it’s a good start and a base for us. I have told the players to enjoy it and milk it for 24 hours because we are used to walking out of a dressing room feeling depressed and feeling down because we haven’t got what we wanted, hence my reaction with the supporters after the game.’
