KEVIN KEEGAN'S reputation gives his Manchester City side a psychological boost, according to Birmingham City goalkeeper Ian Bennett.

Bennett believes that The Citizens can go on to win Division One, and has the utmost respect for Keegan's attacking policy, having experienced it at close quarters in a 2-1 loss on Tuesday night.

"Our gaffer, Steve Bruce, reckons the name of Kevin Keegan gives City a psychological edge," said Bennett. "He talked about it before our game.

"He told us there was nothing to be frightened of and tried to eradicate our fear.

"But I'd say that they are still the side to worry about in the First Division.

"They're the best side I have faced. You can see why they score so many.

"I can't remember a busier night."
