Blackwell will take his lads to the Ricoh Arena and Loftus Road for their next two Championship encounters. And despite both ties being described as 'difficult', United take on in and out of form teams; the Sky Blues are the hottest in the league whilst Rangers have faltered of late.

He said: "The players can take great belief from it because they proved that they can win a big game. At Wolves they played the leaders off the park and we had no luck whatsoever against them and Reading at the Lane.

"We had the rub of the green in terms of decisions against Birmingham, probably for the first time this season in a big game. Of the teams in the top section we, along with Preston and Swansea probably have the momentum although those above us have the points, that's for sure.

"But we are consistent and if we can maintain a run whilst those above us keep faltering then we really would be in the automatic promotion mix."
