Manager Lee Clark reflects on a disappointing defeat in Sheffield.

Lee Clark on his side's performance...

"Thoroughly disappointing result for everyone concerned. Performance just wasn't there in comparison to Wednesday we were just the polar opposite really.

"No drive, no intensity or tempo to our game and in turn we were flat in our mentality because we weren't switched on and all the goals were preventable."

Clark on enforced changes...

"I've been forced into two defensive changes, which you never really want to do as a manager, one tactically and one because I've lost my captain who's inspirational to us. 

"That's tough, that restricts your options then but it just summed up the day for us and then we get Emyr injured once I've made the three substitutions and you play the last part of the game with ten men."

Clark on injuries to Huws and Robinson...

"We're hoping it's just a bang to his hip and we're hoping Paul will be fine after a few days of recover with his head. Certainly those two players are very influential for us."

Clark on Blues' next game against Reading...

"We'll be looking to work hard this week both on the grass and in the classroom watching footage etc to try and get a three points haul next Saturday."
