Gianfranco Zola insists that he’s not worried that his Blues team will be dragged into the relegation battle. His words won’t enthuse the fans, many of whom are beginning to look nervously over their shoulder.

After two wins in 16 games, Blues have slipped to 17th in the Chamionship table which makes tomorrows clash against Wigan at St. Andrews a must win.

Zola told the Birmingham Mail – ‘We come off two very good games, one very good result, one bad one – but the performances were good. As a coach these are very good indications. Play like that tomorrow and we are going to be alright.”

For all the stylish football Blues have played, they’ve produced little in the way of results. Entertaining football won’t achieve anything unless Blues can take their chances and learn to defend as a unit.

Wigan arrive at St. Andrews tomorrow in desperate need of a win themselves. It’s a real six pointer. And for all Zola’s good worded intentions, no team is too good to go down.

  • Of course Zola doesn’t fear relegation.Defeat against Wigan would see him paid up with 3years pay off and he wouldn’t need to look again at the league table. This man is suicidal for this club.

  • Brooklyn I don’t think Zola will be sacked even if we was to get relegated TTA have made it clear he as money to spend next season and 2/3 years to get his job dune. I don’t agree with that but that looks to be how thing will be. IMO If we lose to Wigan tonight it will be time to worry and the supports will all want him out If the supporters lose any little support the have for Zola,s Plan then I think he will be forced out as even Zola wont want to be where he is not wanted. I think it will be 2-1 Blues tonight hope though I am right KRO.

  • We have conceded 7 goals in last two home games. Our goal difference is second worst after Rotherham. Zola needs to stop talking bull***** and do the talking on the pitch. Lose tonight and we will be in a relegation scrap as we won’t beat Newcastle, Brighton, Cardiff or Huddersfield. Ipswich away will not be easy either.
