Kuszczak on the play-off push


Tomasz Kuszczak believes Blues can achieve something this season and says his experience can help the team.

Bought in as a replacement for the departed Darren Randolph at the end of last season, Kuszczak has established himself as the regular starter between the sticks for manager Gary Rowett.

The former Manchester United stopper has kept four clean sheets in five games with Blues only three points shy of the top six.

With a run of five wins in seven – including back-to-back 3-0 victories over play-off rivals Derby and Ipswich, Blues have their play-off hopes well on track.

Here’s what the 33-year-old had to say about Blues pushing for a top six place:

“We know we can achieve something – we have to be consistent, take it step by step and all stick together.”

“This year is fantastic – I have established myself again and it’s great to be back between the sticks,” he said.

“It’s exciting and we’re fighting for something and we’re still in a good position to end in the play-offs.”

After goalless draws against Bristol City and Rotherham, he then went on to say how competitive the Championship is:

“Every season’s the same – they are very difficult because they are in trouble and don’t want to get relegated,” he said.

“They fight, they seem to run further, jump higher and throw themselves about to try to survive – it’s instinct.”

Blues haven’t had the rub of the green against the bottom placed teams, but if they can improve that stat the playoff’s could be in reach.

Blues take on another struggling team Bolton Wanderers at home on Tuesday.

What do you think, can Blues improve their form against the strugglers?
