Blues manager Gary Rowett believes that it’s still all to play for in the race for a play-off position after Blues were held to a 0-0 draw against Wolves yesterday.

The result leaves Blues four points off Sheffield Wednesday who currently occupy 6th place with Rowett`s side having played one game less than The Owls.

Speaking to, he said: “It`s still very much in the balance. There’s a lot of teams up there. As we know, one weekend teams win, the next weekend teams falter because it’s that time of the season.

“It’s handling the pressure of having to win almost every game. I think the issue for us is- and I said this at the start of the season- if we can be in and around the play-offs with 10 games to go it would be an unbelievable achievement for us.

“We are, we haven’t been out of the top 10 all season, which is very positive.”

On the performance of his side yesterday, Rowett said he was particularly pleased with the second half and David Davis` display but rued the missed chances.

He said: “We played an extra midfielder in there, David Davis, who I thought was absolutely excellent. Brilliant, best player on the pitch.

“We created numerous amounts of chances. We were dominant and it was mainly all us. Certainly, we should’ve taken one of those chances.

“It’s a local derby, not easy to play in. Second-half we had five or six very good chances. Not half-chances, I am talking glaring chances you would have to work incredibly hard in most games to get.”
