Cotterill keen to keep winning

Birmingham City manager Steve Cotterill has played down suggestions that his side should easily avoid relegation this season.

The Blues produced one of their best displays of the campaign to beat Leeds United 1-0 at St Andrew's on Saturday - a result that left Cotterill's side at 14/1 to be relegated this term.

Cotterill is keen to build on the weekend triumph when Birmingham visit Reading on Tuesday. City are 27/10 to beat the Royals and 15/2 to edge to a 1-0 victory against Jaap Stam's team.

"We have just got to go out and do things anyway irrespective of whether it's a platform to build on, whatever it is," said the former Cheltenham Town and Bristol City boss.

"We have been trying to show that for a long time and our performances have warranted more points than they have racked up.

"We won't be getting carried away. We are grounded, we know where we are, we're down there, we're still in it, we have got to work just as hard to get out of it. The planning and prep will be exactly the same as it was.

"Let's hope we can get the points in the second half of the season we have felt that, over the last few games, we have warranted."
