Birmingham's Jerome taking it easy

Cameron Jerome says his recent form for Birmingham City is down to being more relaxed about Premiership life.

"I'm definitely more relaxed than I was before when I go out there now," said the £3million hitman to the Birmingham Mail. "The last few games of last season did my confidence a world of good and I've carried on from there.

"I just tried to concentrate on what I'm good at and I scored a couple of goals which helped us get promotion.

"And when I got my chance this season I went about it the same way and, so far, I feel I've done okay.

"I think when you go out there and you're tense, you don't play as well. It has a bad affect on you. I believe I'm performing freely, enjoying myself and it's paying off."
