Blues defender not pointing the finger as Town fall to defeat at Birmingham

Christophe Berra isn’t bemoaning Town’s lack of luck in recent games, and instead wants to focus on what can be done to improve results.

The Blues fell to a 2-1 defeat to Birmingham at St. Andrew’s, and it was a second successive away match in which a penalty decision was a big talking point.

“You need to make your own luck and we have been very inconsistent so far this season,” he told Ipswich Player HD.

“It’s very rare teams open us up, it has been a penalty or a mistake against us, it hasn’t been teams playing great football and going through us.

“When you’re down in that bottom six, or seven it’s tough but if you can get a couple of wins you can be up the top eight and we have that in our locker.

“If we can get everyone playing at seven, eight or nine out of ten every game then I’m sure we’ll get more wins than defeats.

“At the time, I thought the penalty decision was harsh, but it’s hard to tell because the referees only get a split second.

“Today it was a penalty and a set piece separating us. We had a couple of headers from corners and Webby [Adam Webster] had a shot which is blocked whereas our block hits of Varns’ [Luke Varney] arm which was unintentional.

“We have to regroup because we have another big game against Wigan on Saturday.”
