Clark: No Added Significance

5 December 2014

Manager On Facing Former Club

Lee Clark insists Birmingham City being his former club adds no added significance to Saturday's clash at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool meet with the club Clark left earlier this season, but now his focus is firmly on claiming three crucial points for The Seasiders.

“There is no significance with it being Birmingham, I can't be selfish enough to deal in that way,” he said. “We're in too much of a predicament to worry about what's good for Lee Clark.

“It's what's important for Blackpool, and that's continuing the upward curve in our performances and gaining points, but hopefully this time it will be three.

“I've moved on, my career has moved on, I'm enjoying being here with Blackpool. It'll be a tough game, they're one of the form teams in the division, so we're expecting a very tough game, but I think they will be as well.”

Meanwhile Clark confirmed there are no new injury concerns, he does however welcome back an influential player.

“We've got Tony McMahon back from suspension, he is an important player in the squad for us. You cannot have enough good players.

“I want to have that problem where players in the team are playing that well that it's difficult to change them, but also to have good options on the substitutes bench if we need help getting out of an adverse position, like last week,” he said.
