Clark: Win At All Costs

10 January 2015

Manager Delighted With Three Points

Lee Clark says Blackpool's result against Millwall was all about the three points, rather than the performance.

In what proved to be a scrappy game at Bloomfield Road given the conditions, a goal from Peter Clarke was enough to separate the sides.

"It was win at all costs," Clark said. "It wasn't about the performance, it was about the desire and getting the three points. That's what's happened.

"At times we could have been better, certainly with the quality, but you've got to realise the conditions and also the surface. We've adapted very well and it shows you the importance of set-plays."
The winning goal from Peter Clarke was his first since returning to the club, and the experienced defender continues to be a key player in tangerine.  

"He's been one of my best ever signings as a manager," said Clark, who managed the 33-year-old previously at Huddersfield. "He was one of my major ones when I turned things around at Huddersfield, he was my leader. Even though he doesn't have the armband here, he's still one of the leaders in the group.

"You wouldn't want to meet a nicer lad and a more honest professional. Hopefully he gets the credit he deserves because he's been terrific since I've been here."

The manager was also quick to praise the fans, revealing that the players are determined to achieve safety for them.

"I'm thoroughly delighted for the supporters, hopefully they keep believing. We are desperate to keep the club in The Championship for them," he added.
