'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Changes Were Necessary.

A much weakened Birmingham side lost out to Sunderland in the Carling Cup last night, leaving manager Alex McLeish telling the fans that he had no choice in picking the side.

Seven changes were made to the side that beat Hull City at the weekend, but the Blues boss reckons that he could not risk any of his big players picking up knocks and adding to his growing injury list which is the last thing he needs with an important Premier League game against Bolton coming up.

'Such are the injuries we have suffered that I couldn't risk people tonight, I just couldn't risk one or two players who I really need at top sharpness for the weekend,' he told Sky Sports.

'We would love to win the Carling Cup, don't get me wrong. Our supporters would love to see some semblance or a wee chink of going to Wembley.

'But at the moment, we are still a work in progress and I don't have as strong a squad as I would like to have. But we are building towards that.'
