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

Gaffers View - Burnley (H)



Birmingham manager Lee Clark felt that his younger looking side battled away well to earn a draw with Burnley at St Andrews on Saturday.

It looked good for the hosts when Curtis Davies opened the scoring in the first half and it looked like it was going to be City's day when Charlie Austin had a goal ruled out.

But Burnley kept pushing and two quick fire goals from Danny Ings and Ross Wallace had the visitors in front and on course for three points.

But in the final seconds of normal time, Nikola Zigic popped up and made the score 2-2.

After the game, Clark was impressed with his side as he explained to Sky Sports: 'It was another comeback. We deserved the draw with the youngsters putting up a spirited performance.

'That was our best first half at home for many games. There were a couple of situations Burnley had in the early part of the game. But we dealt with that and we deservedly took the lead.

'Then there was a mad couple of minutes in the second half when Burnley scored twice.

'Burnley had a spell for 25 minutes but we switched from doing the basic things.'


Clark also had praise for the free kick taken by Ross Wallace that gave him his first goal of the season with a sublime effort that gave the Blues keeper no chance.

He added: 'To give away the ball from the restart gave them an opportunity because we were fully aware that Ross Wallace has a terrific delivery and I don't think many goalkeepers would have stopped that free-kick.'
