Birmingham manager Lee Clark reckons he never thought Blues would lose Tuesday night’s game at Millwall, even when the home side had gone 3-0 up.

I find that hard to believe myself and you would have got good odds on bet in play gambling sites, no doubt he rushed off and put £50 quid on a draw just after Chris Wood hit Millwall’s third goal.

And surely he would not have known that Marlon King would have hit an hat-trick seeing that last night was the first of his career.

But whether he had a little dream to himself or not, fact remains that King did really well to get Blues back into the game, a game that was for all intent and purposes lost in the minds of many Blues fans who attended.

But not Clark, he told Sky Sports after the game: ‘I didn’t think it was over, even when I was standing there at 3-0. I just felt the game hadn’t gone from us at that stage.

‘I had some sort of belief the players could turn it around and getting a goal before half-time was important for us.

‘It gave us that belief that we could get something. I even said to the players at half-time that we could go on and win the game because I knew Millwall would get nervous.’
