'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sky Blues latest

Chris Coleman has announced a shake-up of his backroom team with John Murtough named as performance director and set to oversee all aspects of the playing side of the club.

Fitness and sports science specialist Mark Howard will replace John Harbin at the end of the season and Andy Thorn will become chief scout.

Frankie Bunn and Oggy remain on the coaching staff.

- Former star Gary McSheffrey is vowing to come through a difficult spell at Birmingham City that has seen come under fire from some Blues fans.

'I'm a fan when I sit in the stands at Coventry - but I've also tended to look at it from a players' point of view as well,' he said.

'Players can be heroes one minute, villains the next. Fans pay their money so they're entitled to have a moan if they feel that someone should be scoring a goal or doing something that they're not.

'If I start crumbling because a few fans get on my back at St Andrews, then I'm really a weak person. I won't let that affect me because, if you score a couple of goals, then you're a hero again and loved again.'

- City reserves were comfortable winners against Shrewsbury on Monday, Chris Birchall, Matt West and Gary Borrowdale scoring the goals.
