Clark: I got tactics wrong
Lee Clark was disappointed with Birmingham's performance as they fell to a 3-2 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday and admitted he got his tactics wrong.
Wednesday dominated the opening period and entered half-time with a two-goal cushion after Rodri followed up Reda Johnson's opener.
Clark, for the second time in four days, turned to Nikola Zigic for inspiration and although the towering striker halved the deficit, lively Owls wide man Jermaine Johnson capped off an impressive game with a third for Wednesday. Marlon King then netted a consolation from the spot in injury time.
Clark said: "We gave poor goals away and gave ourselves too much to do. I take full responsibility for our formation. We knew their crowd would be behind them so I went with three midfielders to dictate the midfield. Hopefully to quieten them down but it gave them momentum."
England goalkeeper Jack Butland, who could have done better with Rodri's second, had earlier gifted Wednesday their opener, letting Jose Semedo's cross slip through his fingers and on to the head of Reda Johnson, who made no mistake.
Clark added: "When goalkeepers make mistakes, nine out of 10 times it will go in the back of the net. He will have a long career, it is how he will bounce back. He is a top keeper with potential."
