PAUL SEEKS TO BANISH BLUES

Paul Stalteri says the team must take whatever positives they can from last week's performance at Chelsea and get on with the business of taking on Birmingham on Saturday.

Paul Stalteri says the team must take whatever positives they can from last week's performance at Chelsea and get on with the business of taking on Birmingham on Saturday.

The Canadian full-back was naturally a bit downcast earlier in the week at Spurs Lodge when he looked back on the late strike that cost us a point at Stamford Bridge. The performance against the Champions contained many plus points, which unfortunately did not lead to Premiership profit at the game's conclusion.

"You could take something from it, but the game is over now, although we know we were as good as them on the day," reflected Paul. "We have to look to the next games, first Birmingham on Saturday and look to get the three points to get back on the right track.

"They are fighting for survival and we are fighting for something a little bit different.

"Sometimes those teams are really difficult to play against, they don't have many more home games after Saturday so they will be looking to win.

"It will be difficult to get the three points so we will have to play with the same determination we showed at Chelsea and hopefully come away with the win this time," he added, saying that he fully expects a particularly lively atmosphere at St Andrews.

"Whenever you are playing a team fighting to stay up away from home, the fans realise they will not have many more opportunities to help their team stay in the league. It will probably be a crowd as vocal as we have come across this season and we must be prepared for it."
