David Dunn insists Birmingham's players are united behind Steve Bruce as the club battle to maintain their Premiership status.
A humiliating 7-0 FA Cup quarter final defeat to Liverpool at St Andrews on Tuesday has cast doubts over Steve Bruce's tenure.
Blues supremo David Sullivan has been quick to quiet talk of a departure for the under-fire chief and now Dunn has leapt to the defence of his taskmaster.
With nine games left to play in the league, Birmingham still have it all to do if they are to beat the drop but midfielder Dunn has called for a united front from all those involved with the Midlands outfit.
''I have never, ever been beaten like that,'' Dunn told The Sun.
''The boss didn't say much in the dressing room - then again, there wasn't a great deal he could say.
''I think he is a really good manager who has always been superb for me.
''They say you find out the truth about yourself when things go against you. Well, we won't have a better chance.
''We have nine games to go and have to start winning.''
