Alex McLeish has warned his Birmingham side not to be over confident when they take on doomed Portsmouth in the FA Cup this weekend.
Blues will be hoping to reach the semi finals of the competition, but McLeish knows that he will be up against a side playing for pride and boosted by a win over Burnley at the weekend.
The Scott said: ‘People say we look a decent cup side with being good defensively and nicking goals. That is the theory.
‘We should be going into the game relaxed – but we will be up against dangerous opposition.
‘Portsmouth are backed into a corner, they had a great result at the weekend, and have some great players.
‘They are on their own patch and, as anyone knows in this league, including the top teams like Manchester United and Chelsea, it is not easy to go away and win.
‘The draw could have been worse but it could have been better and we’ve been drawn away in every round this season.
‘But we won at Everton two rounds ago and we think that, on our day, we can progress.’
