Burton recently confirmed the exits of Gavin Ward to QPR with Jerome Binnom-Williams returning to Crystal Palace at the end of his loan whereas Mark Duffy’s Birmingham loan been extended.

Ward, who has worked with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has moved on to work with him again to become his goalkeeping coach at Loftus Road, joining up with him and David Oldfield with the Championship side.

Nigel Clough has turned to a familiar face to the Brewers though with former goalkeeping coach Martin Taylor, who was part of the coaching set up between 2004-2008, returning.

Binnom-Williams was another of those brought in by Hasselbaink but didn’t always fine first-team starts early to come across, making his last appearances in the starting XI back in November but returns to his Premier League club.

Remaining with Burton though is Duffy, with his loan from Birmingham extended until the end of the season.

Clough had always been keen to keep him with him thankful to former boss Gary Rowett for allowing this, telling the Official Website after the extension was agreed.

‘It’s always good when we are desperate for him to stay and he wants to stay. We are grateful to Gary Rowett and Birmingham for letting him do that. They are on a good run at the moment, so I think this is the best place for him as he wants to carry on playing and he’s in good form.’

Duffy himself said he’s been enjoying his football so getting this regularly with the Brewers made perfect sense for him to remain with the club, which he will up to and including the play-offs (if required).

He added.

‘I’m really enjoying my football here and just want to carry on what we are doing. It’s great to be playing games week in week out because that’s something I really enjoy. I’m pleased with the way I’m playing but I just want to take one or two more chances when they come my way.’
