Can Clarky Fulfil His Premier League Dream?

The Blues boss refused to be downhearted after Birmingham City conceded right at the death last night to lose two points that would have put them in a play-off place.

An equaliser in the fourth minute of added-time by Christophe Berra gave Ipswich Town a share of the spoils at St Andrew’s.

But the Blues boss was not raging following the dramatic 2-2 draw.

Lee Clark: “It was frustrating and I’m gutted for the players because we didn’t deserve that.

“We deserved another victory.

“It would have capped off a  brilliant week at home, three wins on the bounce.

“It wasn’t to be but we cannot be too downhearted because the players have given another terrific performance in both aspects.

“They are a powerful team, they will do a lot of damage to others  over the course of the season.

“We have taken on two teams in the last week who were in the top eight last year (Brighton & Hove Albion, Ipswich) and we’ve more than matched them.

“I’m delighted with what I’ve seen again, but devastated for the players.

“Of course when the game is there to be seen out, you expect  to do it.

“Five minutes of injury time? Not sure where that came from, there wasn’t a physio on the pitch.

“We should be sitting on six points, not four, so I’m gutted for the players."
