Lee Clark: Birmingham boss says the defeat at Derby was the classic 'game of

The visitors twice came from behind to level, firstly through a Marlon King penalty and then a Peter Lovenkrands strike with eight minutes left, but immediately conceded a Derby winner to Nathan Tyson.

Clark said in the aftermath: "I thought our second half performance warranted something but our first-half performance didn't. It's a good summary of our season really, it's a Jekyll and Hyde performance in one game.

"It's been like that game to game for us. We've played well in one game and the next it doesn't look the same team but we had it in one game tonight.

"The first half wasn't our true identity but the second half was. I said to the players at the end that if we play like that from the first whistle and don't allow the opposition to get momentum and get on the front foot, we will get a result.

"I don't want to make excuses but facts are facts. The first goal was offside, that's a fact and the second goal, Marlon King has been fouled on the edge of the box. I've seen the incidents again and that's what happened."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
