Defender Berra keen to rediscover his scoring form
Today’s game with Derby may be the perfect time for Christophe Berra to rediscover his scoring touch.
The Scot has scored 11 times for the Blues in 116 appearances, but has yet to find the net this season in 21 games.
Given he’s scored three times in the Blues’ last four games with Derby, including the opener in a 4-4 draw, an equaliser and a late winner, now would be the perfect time for the defender to get back in the scoring groove.
“I think I’ve scored against them in the last two seasons, but so far this season I haven’t really had many chances to score,” he said.
“It would be great to break my duck and get back on the scoresheet, but first and foremost it’s about getting three points and putting in a performance.

“Over the last few seasons I’ve scored five, six, seven goals and obviously I’d like to score, but the main thing is the team doing well and getting three points.
“I’d take us winning each week instead of me scoring.”

Both sides are in the Championship top six heading into today’s game, with Berra insisting things are going to be tight all the way through to the end of the season in May.
“We’re in a good position in the top six, the league’s got stronger, teams have got better and they’ve playing different kinds of football.
“It’s a Championship season, we’re top six just now but there’s a long way to go. You never know where we’ll be at the end of this season.
“There’s a fine line in this league with not very many points between the team. It never fails to surprise you in the Championship.”
