Birmingham City manager Lee Clark insists that he never thought his side would lose, despite falling 3-0 behind to Millwall after 18 minutes.

Birmingham City manager Lee Clark has insisted that he retained belief in his players despite falling 3-0 behind to Millwall after 18 minutes.

A Marlon King hat-trick saw Birmingham hit back to secure a 3-3 draw, and Clark believes that pulling a goal back just before half-time was crucial in his side's comeback.

Clark said: "I didn't think it was over, even when I was standing there at 3-0. I just felt the game hadn't gone from us at that stage.

"I had some sort of belief the players could turn it around and getting a goal before half-time was important for us.

"We had chances to win it in the second half and it was probably our best half of the season."

Birmingham are 20th in the Championship table.
