Johnson joy at Birmingham win

BY foxsports • February 6, 2011

Nikola Zigic headed the only goal in the second half at Upton Park to lift Blues out of the Premier League relegation zone and leave West Ham bottom of the table on goal difference. "With the results yesterday - just look at the Wolves-Man U game - the league's unreal this year," he told Sky Sports. "It was a massive game, a six-pointer, and we came out with a scrappy goal and won the game. "We were dying on our feet at the end and the ball kept coming back but thankfully we got the three points, we nicked a 1-0 and a clean sheet - lovely." The goal was only the giant Zigic's fourth in the league since joining in the summer and Johnson continued: "We've got into him about being more aggressive - with the size of him he should be smashing people. "But he got his goal today and got us three points."
