After Tuesday night’s display against an unstoppable Leeds side, Redknapp is confident his new-look team has what it takes to rise up the table.
Blues were a goal down with 10 minutes to play but were sucker-punched by a Leeds counter attack to make it a flattering 2-0 to the home side.
You only had to look on social media for Leeds fan’s putting their thoughts over in an attempt to soften the St Andrews faithful’s wounds:

Performance wise, Blues were sound. On the ball, in attack, they looked like a real strong force. However there is that gelling that needs to take place in any new-look team, but so far it looks promising!
Redknapp believes we will be fine going forward. Here’s what he had to say on TalkSport this morning:
“You know when things just don’t go your way in football?
“We’ve changed the team big time to what we had at the end of last season. We bought a lot of new players in who all arrived in the final week of the window, so it’s a new team.
“We played great the other night at Leeds, we were excellent. We dominated Leeds, who are an outstanding team. I thought we were the better side.
“It was 1-0 in the last ten minutes, you’ve got six people up the park trying to get the equaliser and suddenly you get hit on the counter-attack and they score.
“People who didn’t watch the game probably think, ‘oh 2-0, they were well beat’, but we played fantastic.
“We’ll be alright. We’ll be fine, I’ve got no doubts about that.”
Blues currently sit in an all too familiar 22nd place, with just four points from the opening seven games and suffering four defeats on the bounce.
It’s just a matter of time the team hold their ground and start firing. I’m sure we too will become a similar outfit as Leeds are at the moment with that all important win to kick things off. What we do know is the fans will be there backing the former Spurs boss every step of the way…
Blues welcome Preston on Saturday, but it won’t be easy with Adams and Jota both picking up hamstring injuries at Elland Road. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see if they go all guns blazing in search for that elusive win.
What do you think, can the boys in Blue deliver infront of a strong St Andrews crowd Saturday afternoon?
