Defeat to Birmingham didn’t confirm anything but it basically reaffirmed that Blackpool will need something of a minor miracle to stay in the Championship now – a ship that long since sailed!

It’ll actually, according to Clark and what he told the media, be ‘the biggest miracle in football’ if we can defy the odds and overturn our 15-point deficit, which given our poor goal-difference counts for another point too so in reality make it more like 16-points.

‘It’ll be the biggest miracle in football if we stay up now. We have 11 games to go and we’re 16 points behind with our goal difference really.

‘We need to get five wins and a draw more than three of our rivals. When we have only won four so far it’s a tough one.’

The game at St Andrew’s was also, of course, his first return to the club since he was sacked with him saying it was ‘a bit surreal’ as it was a special place, at a special time for him but his focus is now on his job with us.

As much as he, near as, concedes we’re down he’s still ‘prepared to fight’ and wants the players to be doing so too but is also making his selection processes with an eye on next season too but the a return to days when we ‘lived the dream’ is what he wants but first of all we have to ‘bounce back.’

‘We’re still in there fighting and I’m prepared to fight myself. I have one eye on next season and the rebuilding job of the club.

‘We want to get the days back under Ian Holloway when they lived the dream. The first part of that will be to bounce back.

‘With each game that passes it becomes harder and harder, even more impossible than it was.’

Hard but not impossible! Ok, I’ll admit it impossible!
