Lee Clark, even in the face of another defeat, took positives from our defeat at Birmingham but knows that we’ve got to be more clinical in our finishing against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Clark feels that we played some ‘excellent football’ at St Andrew’s and feels we should take ‘encouragement’ from it but knows that if you’re not clinical enough at any level, let alone this level, you’ll be punished – mistakes like the one made for the goal doesn’t help either mind!

He’s also told the Official Website that he knows playing at Bloomfield Road, given the well documented issues we have with the pitch, isn’t going to make it easy with him ‘mindful of what we’re playing on.’

‘I was really encouraged by what we did on Wednesday but we’ll have to change our tactics a little bit because of the pitch. It’s not ideal and I’d love us to continue where we left off in terms of our performance level on Wednesday.

‘It’s a balancing act, trying to get us to do that but also trying to be mindful of what we’re playing on.’

We’ll go into this without the injured Niall Maher and also have to leave out Gary Madine against his parent club so that could leave us with an ‘unbalanced bench’ in order to make our quota but we plod on with Jamie O’Hara and Miles Addison praised for their impressive showings in midfield against Birmingham and challenged to do so again.

Sheffield Wednesday are a side that he says he knows ‘what to expect’ from so we’ll be prepared for them as he seeks another encouraging performances that we can use as something positive to take forward in the rebuilding process.

‘They had a blip in midweek but they’ve been on a good run. They’re a big, powerful side who cause teams lots of problems. We know what to expect, I’m just hoping in the remaining games that the players can keep giving us encouragement to look forward.’
