Foster calls for calm at Birmingham

Published Add your comment

Birmingham stopper Ben Foster has assured fans that the players aren't panicking over their current position in the Barclays Premier League.

The Blues moved closer to the drop zone following the weekend defeat against Newcastle United, with only three points now separating Alex McLeish's side from 18th position.

However, a superior goal difference means Birmingham have an additional cushion and goalkeeper Foster is confident the team have enough to ensure survival.

"It might be a bit nervy for the fans, but there is no doom and gloom or anything like that as we have one game to put everything right," said the former Manchester United keeper.

"Confidence is fine. We have had some tough games with Liverpool and Newcastle away and sandwiched in-between has been the Wolves game at home. We should be okay."


Foster spent the majority of his time at Old Trafford as the club's No.2, but is relishing the first team opportunity that has come his way at St. Andrew's.

The England international is relishing the responsibility of being a regular for Birmingham, and will be hoping to make his mark in Europe as well as in the league next season.

"I'm enjoying my football. Being a regular has made a difference and being an important part of the side," said Foster.

"I get involved in games a lot and it is nice to have that responsibility. I get quite a bit to do."
