Clough tight-lipped about future

Nigel Clough
Clough has been at the helm of the Brewers for 10 years

Burton manager Nigel Clough is refusing to be drawn on speculation linking him with the managerial jobs at both Nottingham Forest and Derby County.

Colin Calderwood was sacked after Forest lost on Boxing Day, and two days later Paul Jewell stood down at Derby.

Burton moved 10 points clear at the top of the Blue Square Premier with victory at Mansfield on Monday.

But Clough told BBC Radio Derby: "I'd rather talk about the achievements of my players than any other club."

He added: "We're just getting on and doing our job as always and if anything needs talking about it's the lads here."

Burton's 2-0 victory at Field Mill was their 10th in a row.

Clough's father Brian managed both Derby and Forest during his illustrious managerial career.
