Hard graft pays for Blues

Published Add your comment

Birmingham midfielder Lee Bowyer believes the Blues are reaping the benefit of an increase in work rate.

Alex McLeish's side have won their last two games and Bowyer has noticed a definite change in his side's pressing since his arrival on loan from West Ham.

Bowyer said: "We are getting on top of teams and we're making them make mistakes high up the pitch."

He added: "We're not really letting them get out whereas when I first came, it was comfortable for them.

"We are working hard as a team and that is showing. There are no easy games in the run-in, but hopefully our experience will be to our advantage."
