Jaidi urges Birmingham not to relax

Birmingham's Tunisian veteran Raidi Jaidi insists that the Blues are far from safe as the Premier League relegation battle rages on.

Alex McLeish's men are now four points clear of the trotters, sitting one place above the drop-zone. Tunisian stopper Raidi Jaidi, though, is feeling far from secure at the wrong end of the Premiership pile.

"Are we safe? I don't think so, I don't quite feel that," Jaidi said.

"In the final six games, anything can happen so we have to keep our concentration until the last game when we know who will be going down."

Jaidi points out the dramatic end to last season, when the Blues bounced back from shock defeats to Burnley and Barnsley to win four games in the trot and grab automatic promotion from the Championship.

"This is like last year, it looked bad for us at one point and although we managed to recover, nothing was ever definite," he continued.

"It will be a valuable experience for us if we stay up, and it will stand us in good stead for next year."
