Captain David Marshall does not think there is a mental block in the Cardiff City dressing room about playing away from home.

Cardiff are still looking for their first away win in the league this season having lost four and drawn four in the Championship.

Russell Slade's side travel to third from bottom Birmingham City and Marshall has targeted victory.

"We've got a big chance on Saturday to put that right," the goalkeeper said.

Cardiff endured another miserable away day on Tuesday when they lost 3-0 at Bolton Wanderers.

Manager Slade said he was "sickened" by his side's first-half performance at the Macron Stadium.

Slade had said prior to the Bolton game his side had to improve away from home to have any chance of winning promotion.

But Marshall is confident results on the road will improve once they have secured their first away win of the season.

"I think if we play well enough and win games it doesn't matter where we are," the Scotland international added.

"Obviously the longer it goes [on] the more people speak about it and the more it would affect us.

"I think as soon as you've won one away game it puts the whole argument to bed

"But if we can perform the way we have been at home under the new manager then I'm sure we can get an away win on Saturday."
