Clark's View - Cardiff away
Craig Bellamy gave the Bluebirds the lead and Leroy Lita gave the visitors hope when he found an equaliser.
But Mark Hudson grabbed what proved to be the winner and in turn took Cardiff to the top of the Championship.
The defeat leaves City lacking any consistency and as such, they take up a lowly 18th place, but Clark still looks at the win over Brighton and feels confident things will get better.
Speaking to Sky Sports News he said: 'The performance was there again. The last two games I've seen bright signs - our performances have been good.
'We've come to two very tough places and been more in the game. We've handled the opposition very well and I certainly feel we should have got something from this game, which would have been two positive results.
'I think we deserved something from the game. I thought we played well and we just got a bit unlucky. The goals are disappointing from our point of view but I feel we deserved at least a point.'
