Grayson:Second place or third place would be nice

Simon Grayson has  urged his side to maintain their fine run of form at Birmingham City this evening.Grayson's men head to St Andrew's to take on the former Premier League side, knowing victory could secure third spot in the Championship.But Birmingham are slowly finding some form of their own and are six games unbeaten in all competitions. Their last home league game saw a 2-0 win against Leicester while they have also won at both Maribor and Bruges in the Europa League."The games have been coming thick and fast for them with the Europa League in there," said Grayson."They are playing catch-up in terms of the league a little bit, but they are a team who will be looking to be up there."They have kept a lot of players from last season and they have added some of Premier League quality so they do have a good squad and have some real quality in it.
"Chris Hughton sets his teams up to work hard and has them organised, so we know it will be a tough test for us."But Leeds go into the game on the back of a seven game unbeaten run that has included back-to-back away successes at Doncaster Rovers and Peterborough United."There's a lot of confidence at the moment," said Grayson. "Individuals have confidence and we are playing with a lot of confidence as a team.
"Second place or third place would be nice, but it's in May that league positions count."Wednesday's game is between two teams who both want to be up there and it has the hallmarks of a good game. We're looking at it as another opportunity to pick up three points."
