Hill's thoughts on Birmingham display

Reds Manager Keith Hill gave his thoughts to the press after his side dominated Birmingham but somehow found themselves on the wrong end of the result. "You've got to take it on the chin.

"We have to take it. It's a measure of the task that we've got. We looks as though we were controlling a football match but shoot ourselves in the foot.

"The first one is a really good cross. I'm not going to blame anyone.

"For the second one the players took it upon themselves to change who is marking who.

"I'm disappointed in the second goal in particular. I am responsible for making any changes, not the players.

"Today he's (Craig Davies) missed it but that's just how vulnerable players can be.

"I can understand the reaction but I've got to manage David Perkins. He's been injured and he's not up to his usual energy levels.

"I don't consider for one minute that we took Perks off and we lost the game because of that. Would they prefer me to have risked him and risked him not being available for Saturday? I feel I've made the right decision.

"If we don't stick together, we'll be relegated."
