Blues boss Gary Rowett has warned his side should not be taking Bolton Wanderers lightly this evening.
His side welcome the Trotters to St Andrews this evening with Neil Lennon’s men currently sitting 23rd in the Championship.
Bolton managed a 1-1 draw against QPR last time out, and Rowett was impressed by how they played.
“I played at Lennon at Leicester and as always is the case when your at the bottom, a couple of good performances can give you hope that you can get out of it.
“They’ve got some experienced players in there regardless of their league position. Goals is something they’ve struggled with but they were better than QPR this weekend.
“I felt for the majority of the game they should have won,” Rowett said.
Ahead of the game, Rowett also highlighted the fact Blues have had 10 days off without a competitive fixture- something that could be a worry.
“We’ve got to be respectful and that we have the advantage that we haven’t played for a while.
“As we know that isn’t always the case and that period of time can be negative. We’ve had a good 10 days training and we know what we’ve got to do to try and win the game,” he added.
