Birmingham defender pleased with win at West Ham

Nikola Zigic scored the only goal of the game at Upton Park. The win saw Birmingham move out of the Premier League relegation zone.

“With the results yesterday – just look at the Wolves-Man U game – the league’s unreal this year,” he told Sky Sports.

“It was a massive game, a six-pointer, and we came out with a scrappy goal and won the game.

“We were dying on our feet at the end and the ball kept coming back but thankfully we got the three points, we nicked a 1-0 and a clean sheet – lovely.”
