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

McLeish - We got what we deserved

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish was full of praise for his side after they beat Wigan on their own patch on Saturday, putting in a fine display that made the visitors look far superior.

McLeish said: 'We're showing we belong in Premier League, the players are entitled to feel massively confident because they've earned it.

'Since the start of the season they have been resilient, bounced back from setbacks in any given game, and they've got their rewards.

'I thought we let Wigan bully us a little in the first half, so I asked the players to get a little closer to people and stop them making passes.

'We were a much more dangerous proposition in the second half, we upped our game and some players took it by the scruff of the neck.

'I felt if we could get a goal we could go on and win it, and we got what we deserved in the end.'
