Clark Not Happy With Bloomfield Playing Surface

Clark Not Happy With Bloomfield Playing Surface

Birmingham boss Lee Clark saw his side come back from a goal down to draw with Blackpool last night but after the game he said that the pitch was a bad one to play on.

He felt that the playing surface spoilt the game somewhat, robbing the fans of spectacular action.

As it was the home side took the lead through Tom Ince who is having a cracker of a season.

But Curtis Davies leveled things and that's the way the game ended although City could have walked away with all of the points had Peter Lovenkrands found the net instead of a crossbar.

'We didn't cause them enough problems, we didn't deal with the pitch,' said Clark to reporters.

'We didn't manage the pitch because the pitch was difficult for both teams. Blackpool did the right thing in the first half.

'Overall the attitude and application and defensive side of the game for the full game I was happy with.'

He added: 'The state of the pitch is unfortunate for both teams because I think there are lots of good footballers on both teams.'
