Burke doesn't fear play-offs

Birmingham midfielder Chris Burke insists he will not be gripped by fear when they face Blackpool in the Championship play-off semi-finals.


The former Cardiff winger (pictured, left, with Adam Rooney) was part of the Bluebirds side beaten by Ian Holloway's men in the Wembley final two years ago.

"I played in the final, yes, It was painful, but it's a memory I have still got and as a footballer player you want to have memories," he told the Birmingham Mail.

"If you learn from your mistakes you move on and hopefully I can do that as an individual, hopefully I can be a big part in helping this club back to the Premier League.

"But this is something you play football for, to get to these kind of games and be involved in these situations.

"If anybody asked would you take being in the play-offs not knowing what would happen, then you would, yes."
