Birmingham manager Lee Clark’s short trip to Molineux ended in disappointment on Saturday as Blues went down to Wolves 1-0.

For excitement the game was nothing to write home about although there were chances for both sides.

But neither side was good enough in front of goal to take advantage so the game was settled by a Marlon King own goal.

For Clark it was another disappointment as a win could have given his side a boost because of other results at the bottom end of the table.

‘Today’s results (elsewhere) gave us an opportunity, the top six hadn’t moved any further away from us before kick-off. We could have actually moved closer to them,’ Clark said to Sky Sports.

‘I made a point of saying that to the players; a win would have taken us six points off.

‘I spoke pre-match about chipping away at those nine points and the teams ahead of us and trying to cut that gap come January.

‘Unfortunately we’ve just stood still, really. I’m disappointed with that and it’s forced hand in hand with the inconsistency at the moment.’
