Butland was sold to Stoke City almost a year ago and is now on-loan at Barnsley.
After victory over Barnsley, Clark said: “I didn’t expect to be seeing Jack, no, to be honest with you. I thought he would be plying his trade in the Premier League this season.
“With the options that were out there, I didn’t know whether Stoke was going to be his choice.
“But he made it his choice and for whatever reason it hasn’t worked.
“He has got to play."
