Clarks View - Huddersfield home. 0-1

Clarks View - Huddersfield home. 0-1

Birmingham boss Lee Clark was left frustrated and angry with his side after the 1-0 home defeat to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The last thing that he wanted was to lose to his former employers and what was more hurtful to Clark was the fact that the side he got ready for the game were booed off the field at the final whistle.

Blues' fifth defeat from 10 games was their second on the trot at home, remembering that Barnsley came to St Andrews and ran riot, the 5-0 score line was the biggest home defeat in 25 years, after that you would have expected better.

Clark told reporters: 'It's our home, it's where the majority of our fans are. They come to see us and want to see a performance. Any football fan in the world wants to see a bit of drive'.

But this display added fuel to the stories earlier this week that claimed there was something of a player revolt going on and looking at the effort that the side put into this game, especially in the first half you have to wonder if the speculation had hit the nail right on the head.

Jermaine Beckford's 25th-minute strike was enough to win the game for the visitors while Blues saw Nikola Zigic sent off for a high challenge with 16 minutes left on the clock.

Clark added: 'It's our home, it's where the majority of our fans are. They come to see us and want to see a performance. Any football fan in the world wants to see a bit of drive.

'Some good tackles are as good as a good shot, they get the crowd lifted, they get them behind the team, they drive you forward.

'Football fans are working-class people, they want to see someone having a right good go for their team, in terms of tackling, heading, competing.

'You see the size of me, I'm not a big fella but I competed, I put my head in there, I put my foot in there. Maybe seven times out of 10 the opposition came through me with the ball but I was still putting some sort of challenge in.

'Okay, I'm responsible but I can't keep saying that. Can they start taking responsibility?'

He's a clown alright, but we cant go sacking and replacing now he needs a fair chance to show what he can do. He was good at HTFC at some point so we know that he can do the job.

His problem is that he is not a likeable sort of person. I believe the storys coming out of the club that he has lost the respect of the players, there is one thing certain in football and thats if the players dont like the manager they can conspire to get rid of him. Hope he goes, sooner the better
