Birmingham boss Chris Hughton was pleased with the late 2-1 win over struggling Burnley on Tuesday night.
Chris Burke hit a dramatic stoppage-time winner to end City's winless run and gain ground on their Championship promotion rivals at St Andrew's.
"We left it very late but the plus to take from it is the fact there is a lot of spirit in the camp and they are a determined group of players," Hughton said.
"We certainly didn't make life as easy for ourselves as we should have done but I was very happy with some of our offensive play.
“We just need to make sure we start working the opposition goalkeeper more than we are doing at the moment."
