Two-goal hero Federico Macheda was quick to praise the contribution of his teammates and the Blues fans at Charlton Athletic.

The Italian striker struck in the 22nd and 79th minutes to wrap up an important three points for Birmingham City.

And afterwards he told BluesTV: "It's always important for me to score a goal but I think the win today was the most important thing because it will help us to get up the league table. Hopefully we can start picking up wins every week. 

"When I scored my second it was a massive goal for us because we closed the game off after we'd been suffering in the second-half because Charlton were pushing very hard. The fans were behind us all the way and it was great to celebrate with them."
