The Blues boss, however, was a little disappointed with  the decision to rule out Wes Thomas's goal for offside and with the red card that the Blues substitute received in the last minute of the 0-0 draw at St Andrews.

"I'm not disappointed with the performance," he said after the game.

"It's a point and a step in the right direction as we look to build on the games we've had so far.

"I think for our goal, Wes was level. He was not offside at all. It was a very easy one to give, at the back post. It should have been a goal and then the game would have been different.

"They got it wrong. It was quite clearly onside."

On the sending off of Thomas, the Blues boss commented: "I'm disappointed with the sending off."

"I haven't seen the incident again so I'll have to watch it before I make any judgement.

"Wes' reaction suggested he was a bit disappointed to have let one or two people down with what happened.

"There was no real need for him to raise his hand and it meant four or five minutes of hanging on rather than trying to get the winner."
