HUDDERSFIELD Town's first win over Birmingham in 10 attempts and their first in nine visits to St Andrew’s was greeted by boos from the home supporters.
And former Town chief Lee Clark, whose side to slumped to 21st in the Championship as a result of their third defeat in four games, believes fans who were watching Premier League football two seasons ago and saw their team compete in the Europa League last time around were well within their rights.
Clark, given the axe by Town last February and appointed by cash-strapped Birmingham during the close season, said: “I don’t enjoy booing – it’s horrible – but I’m with the fans 100 per cent.
“It’s our home, it’s where the majority of our fans are. They come to see us and want to see a performance. Any football fan in the world wants to see a bit of drive.
“Some good tackles are as good as a good shot, they lift the crowd, they get them behind the team, they drive you forward.
“Fans want to see someone having a right good go for their team, in terms of tackling, heading, competing.
“You see the size of me, I'm not big but when I played I competed, I put my head in there, I put my foot in there.
“Maybe seven times out of 10 the opposition came through me with the ball but I was still putting in some sort of challenge.
“There were four of five players in the first half who never did that. They’ve got to stand up and be counted.

“Okay, I’m responsible but I can’t keep saying that. Can they start taking responsibility?
