Birmingham City boss Lee Clark praises his players for their defensive display during Tuesday's 4-0 win over Millwall in the Championship.

Birmingham City boss Lee Clark has praised his players for keeping a clean sheet during Tuesday's 4-0 win over Millwall in the Championship.

The Blues made a return to winning ways at St Andrew's as two goals from David Murphy helped them rout the Lions.

Despite showing a ruthless streak in the final third, Clark was more impressed by his team's performance at the back.

"What's pleased us as well has been the clean sheet," he told the club's official website. "I'm an attack-minded manager and I love my teams to entertain but I just feel that we've got so many match winners at the top end of the field that if we can keep more clean sheets than not this season we've got lads who can produce a little bit of magic and score a goal."

Tuesday's victory has lifted Birmingham up to 17th place in the Championship table.
