Clark Left Feeling Frustrated

Clark Left Feeling Frustrated
Things went wrong for Birmingham City once again yesterday as they went down 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

And it was a disastrous mistake from Tom Adeyemi after City had failed to deal with a free kick from Joey (I won't be playing in the Championship this year) Barton. The Blues man accidentally sliced the ball against the underside of City's crossbar, leaving the simplest of chances for Austin to score.

Birmingham suffered from a lack of getting the breaks, they came within a whisker of taking the lead when Lee Novak headed against the post, and had a goal disallowed for offside.

Then later they should have been given a penalty when Jonathan Spector was brought down in the area by Richard Dunne. Then just to add salt to the wounds, the gimp of a referee booked Spector for diving.

Birmingham's defeat - their fourth in six matches - means the club have made their worst start to a league season for 25 years.

Blues manager Clark said: 'I'm just frustrated for the players. It's cruel.

'In the first half we could have been 2-0 up. We then score an offside goal and 30 seconds later they get one from a set play. Then we still created opportunities, but it wasn't to be.

'It's tough for my young players. We've had some good performances but not got the results.

'I've told them to keep the belief, because we are playing well and we will get results.

'Playing with three centre-backs has made us really solid but I also wanted us to be positive and try to create opportunities and I think we did that.'


He added: 'I don't know whether it was a penalty. I'll need to have another look at that.

'I don't want to make myself look foolish by saying it's a penalty [and then seeing that it was not].

'All I'll say is that John Spector is a good lad - a great type and a great, honest professional.'
