PRE-MATCH
Stuart Gray: “We were battered at Birmingham last season and the boy Lingard scored four goals.  We allowed them to break us down at will and that will not happen this time. This is a very different Sheffield Wednesday. We are playing well, we are confident and as always, we are looking forward to the game.”

Lee Clark: “They have started the season brilliantly. To be fair, during Stuart Gray’s tenure they have been one of the form teams in the league. Their away form has been great. They got a great result up at Middlesbrough. They are using last season’s performance as motivation and it will make it even more difficult.

POST-MATCH
Stuart Gray: “Credit to the players because they faced a different kind of challenge tonight and battled through it to take the points. Birmingham were a little direct in the first half and it knocked us sideways a bit so I was pleased to get into the dressing room 0-0.

“The second half was completely different and we deserved the points after that performance. Another clean sheet makes that six from nine games and you have to be satisfied with that.”



Lee Clark: "I would say it was a Jekyll and Hyde performance from my team. We were very good in the first half and should have gone in at least 1-0 up. But we stopped doing all the good things we'd done in the first half.

"We understood Sheffield Wednesday were going to come more into the game and everything that we had done so well in the first half we stopped doing in the second-half."
