Clark: 'Bellamy Shouldnt Be In Championship'

Cardiff City face Birmingham City tonight with the Blues boss Lee Clark speaking out about Cardiff City forward Craig Bellamy ahead of the clash.

Clark told BBC West Midlands:

'Cardiff have a very talented group of players and they have a 100% record coming off the back of a great result against Blackpool.'

'And, in Craig Bellamy, they've got a player who really shouldn't be in the Championship. If it wasn't for the fact that it was his home-town club who came calling, he'd still be in the Premier League.'



Bellamy was in impressive form last time out, helping the Bluebirds to a 3-0 win over Blackpool. The former Liverpool and Man City man showed plenty of pace, guile and attacking intent - creating space for others and setinng up a number of attacking phases.

Howevcer, Clark may yet be luck and not have to deal with Welsh International Bellamy. It is well known that his knees require careful management and the philosophy has always been against playing his twice in quick succession. It would not be a surprise if Bellamy was rested tonight, allowing him to feature against Ipswich Town on the weekend.

If Bellamy misses out, Joe Mason would be favourite to play in attack, in preference to Etien Velikonja. Craig Noone looks certain to line up on the left wing, with Kim Bo Kyung aiming for a first start on the right with Tommy Smith ruled out. Don Cowie is another who could come in, though City would be better served sticking with the 4-4-2 formation that has seen us notch a win in every home game so far.
