Birmingham are hoping to keep their unbeaten home record intact when lowly Doncaster visit St Andrew’s on Saturday.
The 23rd-placed side beat leaders Southampton last weekend signalling that their current league position doesn’t reflect their talent.
Chris Hughton’s men have become a formidable force on home soil this season, winning five and drawing three of their eight games so far.
Southampton are the only other side in the Championship not to have lost at home but asssistant manager Colin Calderwood stresses that victories away from B9 are equally as important.
Blues lost 2-1 at Hull on Wednesday, leaving them in the bottom half of the table, albeit with two games in hand on the teams above them.
“The league is about winning as many away games as you do at home,” said Calderwood.
“It’s not a case of the old-fashioned belief that a good home record will take you up. We have to produce away victories.
“Strength at home is a standard equation in any promotion bid whereas the really successful team wins away and puts a group of wins together like Burnley did after we beat them.
“We have that capability.
“Being undefeated is all very well but winning games is the most important thing.
“Two victories are better than three draws and we want a minimum of six points from any three games.
“That’s the tally that heads you in the right direction.”
Blues’ Europa League campaign has left them playing catch-up with the rest of the division.
Yesterday they chalked off one of their games in hand with the trip to Hull City, but they still have two more games to complete before they are up to speed with the rest of the league.
Despite only arriving at the club last month, Calderwood has seen enough to know that the players are coping well with the added demands.
He believes that correct preparation, enough recovery time, and the willingness to succeed is helping the players through the busy period.
“It’s not a problem at all,” he added. “The number of games really concentrates their (the players) minds.
“No sooner have you finished one game than you are thinking about the next.
“Your preparation is already started.
“We are so preoccupied by that it means our heads are in the right direction.
“The squad is coping very well and that is testament to the attitude of the players and the conditioning of them and proper recovery process and preparation for games.”
Meanwhile, young Blues keeper Jack Butland is amongst the nominations for the League 2 npower Player of the Month Award for November.
The teenager, who is coming towards the end of a three-month spell with Cheltenham Town, conceded just a solitary goal for the Robins during their three league victories last month.
His performances in goal have helped Cheltenham rise up to third in the table, just four points behing high-flying joint leaders Southend and Crawley.
Butland is nominated alongside midfielder Nick Powell (Crewe Alexandra) and strikers Tyrone Barnett (Crawley Town) and Billy Kee (Burton Albion).
The winner will be selected by a panel of football experts and be announced on Friday.
