Phillips Wins Bosses Praise

Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish was full of praise for veteran striker Kevin Phillips who turned things around to earn Blues three points against Wolves on Sunday.

Birmingham had somehow managed to go a goal down to Wolves and it was looking like they would get nothing from the game, but the 36 year old came on as a sub and netted twice late on to secure the points.

McLeish said: 'Kevin will never lose that ability he has got in the box.

'He might lose his teeth, he might go bald and his legs will go at some stage, but he will always have that magnificent technique and touch of a top player.

'The morale of any player can be affected when they have been a first-choice player all their career and then find they are not playing every week but Kevin has been an exemplary professional.'
