Manager's Verdict: Blues v Inverness

Manager's Verdict: Blues v Inverness

Lee Clark has spoken to the Official Site about his teams win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle yesterday. Birmingham wrapped up a successful pre-season campaign with a 3-1 win over the Scottish side.

Inverness deployed a short passing game similar to Middlesbrough and Clark had praise for some of the individual performances in the game. He also said the win would further aid the players confidence going into the season.

"I`ve been delighted by that. All the players in the squad have been terrific, so I`ve got some difficult decisions to make for next week."

Clark also praised Demarai Gray, the manager said he is going past people easily right now and its exciting times for the youngster. He said he can also provide goals, as can youngster Reece Brown and the club are currently trying to get more out of them in terms of scoring.

It was also revealed in the interview that Donaldson didn`t start due to illness but he should be okay for the trip to Middlesbrough.

Finally Clark branded the conceded goal 'disappointing` but was also pleased it happened today and not in a weeks time. The team will now focus on sorting that out.

Birmingham take on Middlesbrough August 9.

Gray could be important for us this season, by either off the bench with lots of pace or getting at teams early from kick off.

I would start the guy! we have little to lose by giving him the chance early in the season.
03/08/2014 12:58:00
I would start Gray. Twists defences inside out. With a run in the team, goals will come. (This is as unbiased as it can be, despite my crush on him haha!)
03/08/2014 13:05:00
If he scores goals all season I think I may start to crush on him!
03/08/2014 13:09:00
Haha! Agree, try him early on as there is less pressure than say after Christmas or even during.
03/08/2014 13:30:00
He's mine ;) haha! Just hope he has a good few games to get confidence up! What do people think of the new kit? Have you bought one yet?
03/08/2014 15:18:00
I have the home shirt ordered, not sure when its coming. I hope it fits better than last years ha! I'm a fan of the all blue shirts so I think its great. What are your thoughts on it?
03/08/2014 19:55:00
I have the home shirt ordered, with Gray on the back. I think it's a nice kit too, I have to agree about the fit aswell. Looks better on the players, than last years I think. I'd be interested to see what you make of it, when you get it.
