We just have to keep picking up points and see where it takes us.

Lukas Jutkiewicz has praised his side's recent home form, but says their aim is to mirror that by picking up more points on their travels.

Blues' 2-1 success against Luton Town at the weekend was their third successive league victory at the St. Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium.

And it was the Blues striker who headed home the winning goal late on against The Hatters, to bag his fourth goal of the campaign.

"It’s important to make sure your home form is good," he said.

"We’ve had three home wins on the bounce now.

"It is certainly a positive and we’ve created a lot more chances than we have previously and hopefully we can start picking up more points away from home but it’s a start, for sure."

Once again Blues dominated their opponents on home turf and the margin of the victory could easily have been greater than a single goal, with no less than 21 attempts on goal.

"Their 'keeper made some fantastic saves. Credit to him," continued Jutkiewicz.

"From the outside, you don’t see the work that has gone into it.

"It doesn’t just happen overnight. It is something we have to work on in training and will have to continue to work on because we are nowhere near where we want to be.

"We’ve got a lot of things to iron out, but it is certainly positive, and we are enjoying how we are playing at the moment.

"Some of the skills in these players are superb. You look at Dan (Crowley), Fran (Villalba) and Kerim (Mrabti) and these livewires who have got a phenomenal touch and technique.

"Obviously, I have to try and do my side of it, be the battering ram for them, and let them showcase their talent, which they are doing."

Blues' latest victory took their points tally to 22 from their 14 league games.

Although they remain in 11th spot, they are just two points off Preston North End who are in second place and five shy of leaders West Bromwich Albion.

"It’s a crazy league when you think we are 11th but only three points off second place," said the striker.

"No-one seems able to take a firm hold of it.

"It’s good to be amongst it. There will be many teams feeling the same way.

"Whilst we’ve picked up a decent points total, there are plenty of others who have done the same, so it is anyone’s at the moment.

"We just have to keep picking up points and see where it takes us."
