Sutton eyes survival

Sutton eyes survival

New signing Chris Sutton is intent on repaying Steve Bruce for signing him by helping Blues retain their Premiership status.

He told the official website: 'When I met Steve Bruce and Karren Brady they made me feel very welcome straightaway.

'I felt a warmth towards the club and I decided it was the right move for me at this time.

'The position that Birmingham are in at the moment isn't great but I will be doing everything I can to help Birmingham climb the table.

'They have got good players at the club which is another reason that I wanted to come here.

'I know what I have come into and I know it's not going to be easy but I want to do the best that I can.

'I feel that I do owe that to Steve Bruce who has brought me in and I want to do well for him and Birmingham City.'

There have been claims from some sections of the Blues fans that Bruce has signed another injury-prone player, but Sutton insists he is over his injuries and is looking forward to hitting the back of the net regularly for Blues:

'I haven't played a lot of games this season,' he admitted.

'I fractured my cheek after ten minutes of the first competitive game and I was out for a couple of months.

'I have only started seven games this season which is obviously not ideal.

'I have worked as hard as I possibly can in the gym but I need to get training and playing.

'It's not going to be easy but first and foremost I want to get myself as fit as I can, get in the team and do the best that I can.

'But the main thing is for Birmingham to win, it doesn't matter how they win, and to climb up the table.

'That is what I have come here for and hopefully I can play my part and I can create and score goals for the team.

'I have got an open mind as regards to what happens in the summer but all I am focused on now is to do as well as I possibly can for Birmingham, nothing else.

'And hopefully at the end of the season we will still be in the Premiership.'

Sutton will not be travelling for Saturday's match against Torquay, but will be training in order to be in contention for the following Saturday's trip to Charlton.
