Forssell welcomes Birmingham boss Eck's attacking focus

Birmingham City striker Mikael Forssell is convinced he can fire the goals to keep the club up this season.

Forssell said: "He has told the forwards to express themselves more and to have the freedom in the last third to do stuff. I personally like that.

"We perhaps take more risks and try things. If we lose the ball, he does not bully you for that and trying stuff. That is good. You need that as a striker."

The former Chelsea striker is relishing the chance of putting his ideas into practice alongside James McFadden.

He added: "James has great qualities. He is great with the ball. I like the ball into my feet and he can play one-twos in and around the box. Both of us are very attacking minded and that helps.

"I should have scored at least one against West Ham, I had two chances. I have not played that much but I need some games and I know that will come."
