Clark content after Harriers win

Manager Lee Clark hailed the 'pace and power' of his Birmingham team as Blues continued their impressive pre-season form with victory at Kidderminster.

Goals from Wes Thomas and Clayton Donaldson earned Clark's men a third straight friendly win. The first of Thomas' double came after he relentlessly pressured the home defenders from inside his own half, after Blues defended a corner.

"There were lots of good things," said Clark. "Still one or two situations we need to brush up on. But all in all, happy with the performance.

"It was a very hot day, conditions British players aren't used to. But the lads coped with it well, passed the ball around well at times and scored some good goals.

"It showed the power and pace we had at the top end of the pitch."

"I thought Lee Novak and Wes Thomas linked up well in the first-half, then Clayton Donaldson and Wes had a bit of time and he got on the scoresheet as well."

On Thomas' first goal, Clark said: "It showed on the break that we can be a threat, we can play counter-attacking football as well. It's not just Wes' pace, it's his willingness to work. That gets him in the areas, that gets him up the field.

"Some people might have given that one up, 20 yards before he got through. It's a great thing for us to have."
