Simon Grayson won't think twice about heaping misery on friend and ex-Huddersfield boss Lee Clark when he takes Town to St Andrew's.
Grayson, who replaced Clark as Huddersfield boss in February, said he had spared a thought for the under-fire Clark, whose side slipped to a fourth league defeat of the season at Cardiff on Tuesday.
"Lee's a friend anyway, we've spoken quite a bit. I think when I was at Leeds we let Alex Bruce come on loan here and at games you bump into each other, so yes, we get on well and he wished me well when I came here.
"Whatever happened between Lee and (Huddersfield chairman) Dean Hoyle before I came here doesn't matter. It's not going to affect my outlook on the game at the weekend. It's not me against Lee Clark, it's my team trying to get three more Championship points.
"But you do feel for any manager under pressure. We're all under pressure, we're in the same industry, but it's part and parcel of being a football manager.
"I do have sympathy for him, but if we have to put more pressure on Lee come Saturday tea-time then so be it."
