Tomasz Kuszczak is loving life with Birmingham City

Tomasz Kuszczak joined Birmingham City from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer.

Tomasz Kuszczak has told the Birmingham Mail that his move to Birmingham City has been ‘fantastic’ so far.

Kuszczak joined Birmingham last summer, following the expiration of his contract at fellow Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

And the Polish stopper says that he is delighted to be playing regularly again, after struggling for appearances throughout the whole of the last campaign.

“This year is fantastic - I’ve established myself, I’m playing, I’m healthy, I don’t have any injuries," he said. 

“It’s great to be back between the sticks and to play for a great club with good support. We’re still in a good, good position to end the season in the play-offs, and it’s exciting for everyone.

“It’s nice that we’re fighting for something, for a good achievement.”

Kuszczak has been Birmingham’s first choice in goal throughout the season so far, and he has largely impressed with his performances.

The former Manchester United man has made 32 appearances for Gary Rowett’s men to date, and he has helped the Blues keep a solid defensive record in that time.

Birmingham have conceded just 30 times in their 31 Championship matches this campaign, and Kuszczak has proved a reliable last line of defence, which is no surprise given his previous experience.

Birmingham’s solidarity has been what they have built their season upon, and Rowett’s men currently lurk just outside the play-off spots, in seventh place heading into the business end of the campaign.
