Midfield playmaker, Eyal Berkovic has been paying tribute to the travelling Blue army who have endured the winter weather to see the Blues take four points from a possible six.
Eyal Berkovic has been speaking for the City players in thanking the travelling fans who had two long journeys in the space of five days.
And the thirty-year-old believes the four points from the trips to Sunderland and Charlton have boosted the team's confidence ahead of the games in the holiday period.
"We have had unbelievable support all season but the way the fans backed us in the freezing cold and rain at Sunderland last Monday night and then again at Charlton was heart-warming for the players and we really appreciated it," he said.
"Hopefully we responded by giving them something to shout about and now if we perform to our best in the next two matches we can make it a perfect Christmas for them. They deserve it."
"We feel we are improving all the time as a team but the only way to show that is on the pitch."
"We are going into the holiday time in a very positive frame of mind and knowing that we are playing well. If we can win both the home games that are coming up we will be right up there in the top section of the table."
The midfielder had grown into the Blues main creative force with his vision and passing. But he accepts there is a price to pay as he experienced on Saturday when up-ended by Jason Euell.
"You have to accept that kind of thing when you play well and people speak about you in positive terms," he said. "In many ways it is a compliment and while teams are paying special attention to me there may be more room for other players."
"Marc Vivien Foe has scored three times in the last two matches and that is great for the team. As midfield players we have responsibility not only to set up chances but also help the strikers and the team by scoring goals."
"I think we are showing everyone that we have settled to the task in front of us and we are not just playing well as individuals but as a team. We are all working hard for one another and it is paying dividends."
