The Reaction: Millwall 2 Blues 3

Birmingham City manager Lee Clark hailed his '11 heroes' following the 3-2 victory over Millwall at The Den.

Clark on the performance:

"Terrific, I thought we weathered the early storm and scored a tremendous goal to take the lead. We played some exciting stuff but it got a bit scary towards the end when they got the second goal; but i thought we thoroughly deserved the victory and it's a massive three points for us. I think we've had 11 heroes out there tonight, every single one of them has given me a right good performance."

Clark on the defensive display:

"The back lads defended brilliantly, the goalkeeper was brilliant, Nikola had to come back and head a few balls away which he's really good at for us. We're really happy with the outcome."

Clark on the hostile atmosphere: 

"We knew it would be intimidating but the players have dealt with what was thrown at them very well."

Clark on Ibe:

"A terrific strike from young Jordon, he was a big threat all night because actually the lad who was up against him, young Ryan Fredericks is very, very quick, it was a good tussle between the two."

Clark on Shinnie:

"I'm glad for Andrew, he just needs a bit of luck and I'm hoping he gets confidence from that now. In his last three or four games he's done particularly well. He was a bit off the pace on Saturday against Reading in terms of his technical side, he worked extremely hard for the team as per usual but delighted for him tonight, he put in a good performance for us."

Clark on the next match:

"I want the players to push on. To get the first time back-to-back wins at this stage of the season would be a great fill up for us."
