Fabrice Muamba insists Birmingham City's dressing room remains upbeat, despite their defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

"We are getting better and better and hopefully the goals will come for us," said the young midfielder. "I have no doubt that with the players we have, if we carry on like this, and we keep working hard for one another, we will be okay and things will be all right.

"The boys are looking very strong. The togetherness in the dressing room is very strong too, stronger than last year.

"We need that three points on Saturday now. That's what we will be going for."
