'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Clark Blames Missed Chances.

Birmingham City boss Lee Clark was left ruing missed chances by his side after the 1-1 home draw with Blackpool on Tuesday night.

It was disappointing not to see Blues get the full three points they so richly deserved from the display they put in, but it was another case of not being able to put away chances when they come along.

Curtis Davies set City on their way when he found the net to put the home side in ascendancy.

And that goal looked like it would be enough for Blues until Kirk Broardfoot came up with an equaliser for the visitors.

But even then the game was not over as with three minutes left of normal time substitute Wade Elliott somehow managed to fire over the bar when it looked easier to score from just six yards out.

Clark said to Sky Sports after the game: 'It was definitely (two points dropped); I think we deserved to win the game.

'It was a nervy start for the first 15-20 minutes but we grew into the game and finished the half really strong, we could have been more than one-nil up.

'And then we started the second half really well too, unfortunately we couldn't get that decisive second goal and then they score a very similar goal to us from a set-play.

'It's a bit frustrating really. We've played with a lot of desire, tenacity and at a high tempo.'
