Jonas Knudsen insists he and his team-mates must trust in their ability and ‘stand up and think we’re good enough’ as they continue their search for a first win of the season.

It looked as if the Blues were going to break their duck at Birmingham on Saturday, only for Lukas Jutkiewicz’s brace to wipe out a 2-0 half-time lead given to the Blues by goals from Jon Nolan and Matthew Pennington.

Knudsen believes Jutkiewicz’s first goal, which came just three minutes after the interval, changed the nature of the game as the hosts began to pile on the pressure.

The Blues take on third-placed Middlesbrough tomorrow night, with Knudsen insisting the squad need to show character during their tough run.

“Goals change games and that’s happened,” Knudsen said.

“I thought we were good in possession in the first-half and I don’t think they created a lot. They got an early goal in the second-half and after that they put pressure on us.

“In the position we’re in we have to take a point and say ‘well done boys’ because the confidence isn’t as high as it has been.

“We are around the bottom of the table and we’re scrapping to get points so we have to trust ourselves and believe ourselves to do what we know we can do.

“We have to stand up and think we’re good enough. We’re unbeaten in three so let’s take that as a positive and go out and win on Tuesday. Then maybe it will turn around for us, so let’s hope we can do that.”
