Novak Happy Helping Gray

Novak Happy Helping Gray

Birmingham City player Lee Novak has said he is delighted with pre-season and wants to continue the great form into the season. Blues beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-1 at St Andrews yesterday.

Novak said the team wanted the win for a positive end to the season`s warm up. He described it as a good team performance. The versatile striker was pleased he helped Demarai Gray get a goal with their link up play and pleased to score a belting strike himself.

He continued by saying Blues will prove they are a good team by stepping up each time the quality of opposition increases. He agreed that the wins have done no harm but he was eager to say that the real test is at Middlesbrough next week.

Novak made 28 appearances for Birmingham last season, scoring 8 league goals and finishing at top scorer in all competitions with 10.

Do you think Clark will play Novak or opt for Donaldson and Thomas instead? I can feel Novak being a handy sub to have, if Clark doesn't think he's first choice!

I think Novak will play as part of the Midfield in away games due to his defensive responsibilities. At home, yes Thomas and Donaldson would probably be my front two with their pace. Do you think he will either be up front or on the bench?

I hope he plays Novak, hes important to the team no matter where he plays. Blues could do with the effort he puts in every game.

Purely on a midfield basis, wouldn't you prefer Adeyemi, Caddis and Edgar there rather than Novak? I would. I'd also prefer Wes and Clayton up front. Leaving no room for Novak. But his work rate needs to be matched by others.

I just have a feeling it will be 4-2-3-1 with Novak wide of the three to track back and give Blues a solid shape when they don't have the ball.

Are we agreed on what formation away then?

If I was a manager, I wouldn't change formation based on away or home. I'd match it to counter strengths based on the opposition.

A lot of the time though you have less of the ball away from home, surely you have to cater to that?

You also have more freedom to attack away, because at home you're expected to dominate and win. That's why Blues did well away last year, in my opinion.
