Harry Redknapp has played down reports that he is under pressure as Birmingham City boss, telling talkSPORT he is confident his side will start picking up points soon.
Redknapp rescued the Blues from the jaws of relegation last season, sealing their Championship status with a crucial victory on the final day of the campaign.
He took the job in a full-term basis over the summer but it’s been a bumpy start at St Andrews this term.
Redknapp’s new-look team currently sit 22nd in the table with just four points from their opening seven games, and they have suffered four consecutive defeats in the league.
The former Tottenham boss is said to be in danger of the sack after their poor start, but Redknapp is confident things are changing and that it’s just a matter of time until they get the wins their performances deserve.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Redknapp said: “You know when things just don’t go your way in football?
“We’ve changed the team big time to what we had at the end of last season. We bought a lot of new players in who all arrived in the final week of the window, so it’s a new team.
“We played great the other night at Leeds, we were excellent. We dominated Leeds, who are an outstanding team. I thought we were the better side.
“It was 1-0 in the last ten minutes, you’ve got six people up the park trying to get the equaliser and suddenly you get hit on the counter-attack and they score.
“People who didn’t watch the game probably think, ‘oh 2-0, they were well beat’, but we played fantastic.
“We’ll be alright. We’ll be fine, I’ve got no doubts about that.”
