Birmingham City manager Lee Clark reflects on his side's victory at Blackpool.

Clark on the result...

"I thought we started the game really well, really brightly, and then for some reason we stopped passing the ball to create the opportunities that we had.

"We gave a disappointing goal away but I said to the players at half-time just keep doing the right thing and we can win this game.

"We matched Blackpool up a little bit we went with a bit of a diamond in midfield and bought Nikola on and he caused one or two problems."

Clark on two-goal hero Lee Novak...

"He's come up with the goods again.

"He's played two or three different positions for us out there today in different formations and his application in all those positions has been magnificent as usual."

Clark on debutant Jordan Ibe...

"I thought he was powerful, he was quick, he was really bright.

"All the players are tailing about him in there and we're looking forward to working with him that's for sure."

Clark on the impact of Emyr Huws...

"Class act, absolute class act. He's so good it's untrue.

"He probably had his most indifferent game for us last week but he wast still a 7 out of 10. The rest of the time he's an 8 or a 9. He's a top, top player."
