Sam Allardyce has revealed his confidence in his own ability got him through the darkest hours of Newcastle´s recent poor run.

The Magpies head into the Barclays Premier League clash with Birmingham at St James´ Park looking for their first win in seven attempts but Allardyce insisted his self-belief never deserted him.

"You do not listen to outside influences, you do not listen to speculation," said Alllardyce. "You know you are a good manager, you know what you are doing and you stick to it. You do not let the distractions put you off."
