But Kevin Keegan's former "buffer" Terry McDermott has every confidence that the Blues will not be relegation fodder.They fell into the Championship drop-zone for the first time since coming out of the top-flight in 2011 after defeat at St Andrew's by Charlton Athletic.In such a crucial game, Blues under-performed badly, but assistant boss McDermott insisted that Blues can get out of the bottom three.
McDermott handled media duties after the match as manager Lee Clark went AWOL.Terry McDermott: “To go from such a high of playing well against Stoke – I say a high, but we didn’t go through in the cup, but put on a performance – to the low of Saturday, it is not easy to swallow.“It will take a couple of days to get over this. But get over it we must.“There are a lot of games to go. We are in a bad position, no one is pretending we are not.“But we will get out of it, I am quite convinced of that. We have got too many good players.“It is a bad position, it is not a position we want, but it is not a position where we anticipate being for long.“We have got a good dressing room, a great spirit, but on the day those players didn’t turn up.“Lee’s hurting, we are all hurting."What now for the ex-Newcastle star?
