Birmingham City midfielder Maikel Kieftenbeld has paid tribute to the supporters for keeping the mood around the club positive.
Blues are unbeaten in their last eight games to find themselves sitting eighth in the Championship, just a point adrift of local rivals Aston Villa.
Kieftenbeld <a href=”https://www.bcfc.com/news/articles/2018/maikel-kieftenbeld-the-fans-have-helped-keep-the-positive-vibe-going/”>told the club website</a> that the fans and players were coming together to lift the mood of the team after a difficult summer.
“The atmosphere around this club from the start of the season was really positive,” he said.
“There were so many factors for maybe fans to be negative, with things like the embargo and the small squad.
“But people see what we are doing out on the pitch and how hard we are working to try and give the fans what they want to see.
“There could have been a lot of negative things around the squad, but the fans recognise we are doing the right things and it keeps a positive vibe going.”
