McLeish believes point was deserved

McLeish believes point was deserved

Blues manager Alex McLeish watched his side snatch a draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the dying seconds and said after the game that his side were well worth the point.

Lewis Buxton had scrambled home his first goal for Wednesday in the 56th minute, but Kevin Phillips pounced with the clock ticking down for his 12th goal of the season.

McLeish said: 'If anyone thinks we didn't deserve that then they need their head examining.

'I was disappointed to go behind because up to then we were the better side.

'They were dangerous of course with Johnson on very good form, (Marcus) Tudgay is a clever player and big Leon (Clarke) up front - they're a handful.

'But I felt we dominated proceedings, first half especially, but when you don't score goals, you're not going to win games.'


On Phillips McLeish added: 'He was the man you wanted on the end of it because there were two or three at the back post there.

'David Murphy got forward, Scott produced a superb cross and Kevin's the one you want there.

'We were wondering about taking him off, but you've got to leave him until the end.

'He's the man with the nose for goal. Thank goodness we made the correct decision.'
