Murphy: Birmingham too good to go down

Birmingham City fullback David Murphy has declared they're too good to go down next season.

The ex-Middlesbrough fullback told the Birmingham Mail: "Getting relegated was the biggest low of my career, as it was for a lot of the lads.

"I wouldn't say we were a bad team, we came close to staying up but just didn't do enough.

"Definitely we will learn from that and I don't think we will be going in there next season worrying.

"We have got some very good players in the squad, there's a lot of experience of the Premier League, and I think it will actually suit us more than the Championship did.

"The manager will have more targets to bring in and I'm sure they will be players who are going to help make us better."
