Birmingham's McSheffrey keen to get one over Bruce

Birmingham City striker Gary McSheffrey is looking forward to getting one over Steve Bruce this weekend.

"Steve's done a fantastic job at Wigan, you've got to take your hat off to him," said the striker. "It was a shock when he went. Everybody was surprised by it and we were in a bit of turmoil for a while. There's a lot of players here who owe him plenty.

"We will go there as friends of his but once we get to the stadium and out there on the pitch we need to win the game and pick up the points, so there will be no love lost. That's the way it is, and that's the way Steve would expect it too.

"If we beat them we will go ahead of them in the table and that's the main aspect of the game for everybody here really."
