Speaking at a press conference this morning ahead of Birmingham City's championship clash with Ipswich, manager Lee Clark refused to comment on the impending verdict of Carson Yeung's money laundering trial in Hong Kong.

The hearing will conclude at the beginning of next week.
A coroner says neglect contributed to the death of a dementia patient from Birmingham. John Nicholls, 76, was a former football player for Birmingham City.
He escaped from his care home and was hit by a train in February 2011. The coroner says the care home did not assess his needs properly and that it missed opportunities to refer his case to social services.
The coroner said Mr Nicholls was in a home not sufficient for his needs and that staffing levels were insufficient. She said he had made previous attempts to escape because he "simply wanted to go home." Not referring these to social services was a "missed opportunity".
Speaking via her lawyer, Mr Nicholls' youngest daughter Justine said:
"Our concerns are that lessons must be learned to ensure that vulnerable elderly people are provided with appropriate levels of care and in the correct environment for their particular needs in order to avoid these tragedies occurring in the future."
At the time of Mr Nicholls death, Heartlands Care Home was run by Southern Cross. In a statement, the new owners said:
"Orchard took over the running of this home in October 2011 and since then we have made significant changes to the security of the home.
Our most recent Care Quality Commission inspection in October 2013 was extremely positive. Heartlands today is a very different place from the one we inherited and we consider it to be a safe and happy home."
