Lars Jacobsen insists West Ham "don't belong" at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League despite surrendering a two-goal lead at Birmingham.
The Hammers looked to be cruising to their first away success of the campaign after Frederic Piquionne and Valon Behrami put them in total command.
Cameron Jerome and Loam Ridgewell's quickfire double reply rescued a point for Alex McLeish's side but defender Jacobsen insists the Hammers have the quality to climb the table.
He said: "We just have to get out of there. When you look at the team, look at the players, the way we play, we don't belong there.
"We have to get away from that position. We are bottom of the league and you could sense, when they scored the first goal, a little bit of insecurity started to creep in. We stopped playing the football we had been playing for about 10-15 minutes and that was enough for Birmingham to score two goals and that was unfortunate.
"We have to learn from that but, having said that, we played 75 minutes of brilliant football away from home and showed we definitely don't belong in the last position in the league."
