Manager Lee Clark has said our game against Millwall was only ever about the points and he couldn’t have cared less about the performance we put in.

The basement battle in many ways did become a hugely scrappy affair at Bloomfield Road, but a first half goal from Peter Clarke was enough to see us to victory come the full time whistle, and the manager told the Official Site that ahead of the game his message was don’t worry about the performance, just come out of it with all three points so he couldn’t have been more pleased to see us get the win.

‘It was win at all costs. It wasn’t about the performance, it was about the desire and getting the three points. That’s what happened. At times we could have been better, certainly with the quality, but you’ve got to realise the conditions and also the surface. We’ve adapted very well and it shows you the importance of set plays.’

With the winning goal coming from Clarke, it was his first goal since he returned to the club and with Clark already praising the experienced defender for his efforts on the pitch, he was delighted to see him get the winner.

‘He’s been one of my best ever signings as a manager. He was one of my major ones when I turned things around at Huddersfield, he was my leader. Even though he doesn’t have the armband here, he’s still one of the leaders in the group. You wouldn’t want to meet a nicer lad and a more honest professional. Hopefully he gets the credit he deserves because he’s been terrific since I’ve been here.’

The manager was also very quick to praise the supporters for their efforts on the day.

‘I’m thoroughly delighted for the supporters, hopefully they keep believing. We are desperate to keep the club in the Championship for them.’
