McLeish Bursting With Pride

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish was rightly proud of his players last night after they won their fifth game on the bounce and now sit in sixth place in the Premier League.

Cameron Jerome hit both Blues goals and that proved to be enough for McLeish`s men to equal a record last achieved 36 years ago.

McLeish said: 'I'm proud of the players and I think the fans should be proud of them as well. They have shown a fantastic appetite and attitude since day one in the Premier League.

'They have also shown they can rise to the challenge when the expectation levels go up. With each game we have won, people are expecting more and mention things like Europe but we are keeping our feet on the ground.

'The Premier League is our main concern and we have given ourselves a very good chance to stay in the strongest league in the world.

'I never set any targets at the start of the season except trying to finish in the top 17. But we have got to be confident about our team and confident about building on this fantastic first half of the season.''
