"Complacency is not in my DNA and not something I understand.

It's not in my way of living and it's not in the way of living of Birmingham City.

Pep Clotet insists he and his players are focused on getting the points that will make them mathematically safe from relegation as soon as possible.

Blues head into tomorrow night's home fixture against play-off chasing Swansea City, five points ahead of the drop zone with five games of the season to be played.

Whilst Blues ultimately lost out to Fulham last weekend after the hosts struck a 95th minute winner, Clotet believes the manner of the performance showed that his side still have the determination to fight for every point.

"The performance showed on Saturday that everybody is fighting and working hard for the team," he said.

"We will not allow anyone to be complacent or think that it's holiday time.

"I would not allow anyone to step on the pitch like this because it is too serious for the Club and the profession.

"There are five games to play and our duty as staff and players is to make sure we compete until the last whistle of the season."

"In the situation we are in it's very easy to see who cares for the Club and who doesn't care for the Club," continued Blues' Head Coach.

"It's my job to put 11 players out on the pitch that understand that.

"Complacency is not in my DNA and not something I understand.

"It's not in my way of living and it's not in the way of living of Birmingham City.

"The players think similarly to me. They are all ambitious and they all want to do well, and they will be battling to the end for every point there is to play for.

"It doesn't matter where we are in the table."
