Birmingham City manager Lee Clark was quite happy with the way his side came back from being two goals down to draw the game with Derby County this afternoon.

After taking the lead through Brian Howard, Derby rallied and got the score level just a minute later through Bamford who made up for Bryson’s earlier penalty which Randolph saved.

Derby then went in front when Martin saw a shot get deflected high and then drop in the net and then they stretched their lead to 3-1 when Ward got on the score sheet.

But Blues were not beaten and Burke grabbed a goal back before United loan star Macheda smashed the ball home from close range from a corner.

Lee Clark told reporters after the game: ‘The desire and never-say-die attitude was there for everyone to see. We could have buckled at 3-1 down against quality opposition but we kept going and got a terrific ending to the game.’

He also felt that he had to comment about how his young side managed to show commitment and skills above their years to keep going at Derby and not give up after going 3-1 down

He added: ‘The lack of experience is scary at times but they’re taking it in their stride and showing a mental courage to keep fighting and fighting.’

The boss also explained why Mecheda started on the bench instead of being straight in the side from the start.

He added: ‘Federico didn’t meet his team-mates until 12.30pm today so that’s probably why he started on the bench. But he made a huge contribution and looked bright.’
