We can break Birmingham's run - Hahnemann

06 February 2010 02:48
Wolves goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann has thrown down the gauntlet to his team-mates on the eve of Sunday's crucial derby clash at Birmingham. Wolves, who are without a Premier League victory since beating Burnley on December 20, badly need a win to boost their battle against relegation. But getting it at St Andrew`s promises to be a tough task. Blues are unbeaten in their last nine home games with Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all failing to win in the Second City. Yet Hahnemann thinks Wolves could be the team to break that run. He said: "Birmingham are a fair number of games unbeaten at home. But the longer those things go the more it is a challenge for someone to break it. So why not us? "They've been playing well but if we play as we can we've got a chance of being the team to end that streak." Hahnemann does not expect there to be a hangover from the Palace debacle, adding: "It's good that the bad performance came in the cup because we can now concentrate all our attention on the league which ultimately is the main thing that matters. The games are so vital now."
