Lee Bowyer believes Birmingham have the potential to stay in the EFL Championship.

Birmingham

have not had a good run in the Sky Bet Championship. The Blues are currently sitting 21

st

in the table, six points clear of the relegation zone and the 22

nd

-placed

Rotherham

. However, Rotherham have four games in hand and Birmingham can still sense the danger of relegation.

After a series of weak performances which led Birmingham to the bottom of the table, the club decided to part ways with the former manager

Aitor Karanka

, and replace him with the Blues former midfielder,

Lee Bowyer

.

Bowyer experienced his first win with the team as manager yesterday in the 2-1 victory over

Reading

.

Despite being at the bottom of the table, the English manager believes his team ‘have got enough to stay up’.

“If I didn’t think we’ve got enough to stay up, I wouldn’t be here,”

Bowyer said.

“Everyone keeps looking at what are now our next three games – Watford, Brentford and Swansea – and the run-in, but we’ve also got another six after that.

“There are no easy games. The first four games are tough but Derby and Rotherham will be tough too.

“I believe we will stay up – if we work like that and put in performances like that in every game, we’ve got a very good chance.”
