Jerome happy to fit in

Birmingham City striker Cameron Jerome says he is happy to play in any formation he is asked to by Blues manager Steve Bruce. The England Under-21 forward has netted three goals for City this season, but has often had to plough a lone furrow, with Olivier Kapo acting as a support striker. Jerome told the Birmingham Mail: "Any striker will tell you that he prefers it when there's two up front, as it gives defenders a bit more to worry about. "One then tends to do the work and the other plays off him and gets into the box. "When I've been up there on my own with Olivier behind, I've had to run all over the place and you'd like to conserve a bit of energy so you can get into more goalscoring positions. "But to be honest, I don't mind it. Whatever the managers asks me to do, I'll do it. "He's set us up a certain way in certain games to try and give us the best chance of a result." Jerome, 21, joined Birmingham in the summer of 2006 for £3million from Cardiff City and has scored 12 goals in 53 appearances for the St Andrew's club.
