Lee Clark was proud of the effort his players provided to secure a 2-2 draw at Leicester City.

Blues twice came from behind to secure a valuable point at the King Power Stadium, which eventually resulted in Chris Burke slotting home a 91st minute penalty – and equaliser.

Whilst satisfied by a deserved draw in the East Midlands after a pulsating encounter, Clark felt the visitors could have travelled back to Birmingham with all three points.

The Blues boss told “I was really pleased with the performance. I would have been devastated for my players if we had of been on the back of a defeat here. I thought our performance deserved a positive result.

“If there was going to be a winner, I think because of our football and the way we passed the ball around, I would have felt it would have been us. Maybe on reflection, a draw possibly could have been fair, but I was really pleased with our performance. It’s another terrific away performance from us.”

Blues ensured the Foxes continued their miserable run of form, and Clark was pleased with the way the St. Andrew’s outfit used the King Power atmosphere to their advantage.

He added: “That was part of my pre-match team talk (the nerves of the home supporters). I think all the teams at the top are getting a little bit twitchy, when you see they haven’t been in brilliant form.

“Because the prize and the expectations of all the clubs are so big, you know there’s going to be tension on the terraces and that can translate to the players on the pitch, so you’ve got to use that to get a result and I think we’ve done that tonight.”
