Lee Clark says that Chris Burke is a "top player" after the striker netted a brace in their 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

Birmingham City manager Lee Clark has heaped praise on striker Chris Burke after his match-winning performance against Nottingham Forest.

Burke netted in either half to give the Blues a 2-1 win over Forest at St Andrew's on Saturday.

Back-to-back wins have moved Birmingham up to 16th in the Championship table, and Clarke is delighted with his side's recent form.

"It's always about winning," said Clarke. "We've had a lot of draws so it's great to get back-to-back wins. Let's hope we can kick on.

"Chris Burke is in terrific form at the moment and he was more than worthy of being today's match winner. He's a top player."

Birmingham travel to Charlton Athletic next weekend.
