McLeish Disappointed with First Goal

McLeish Disappointed with First Goal

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish watched his side go down 2-0 at West Ham on Wednesday and admitted after the game he was disapointed to conceed a goal just before half time.

Scott Dann fouled Scott Parker and Diamanti sent in an unstoppable free kick to set the home side on their way.

'In the first half I though we played well,' said McLeish.

'I thought we were relatively in control.

'We started to penetrate a little bit. We just could not quite get the killer touch.

'To concede a goal on half time the way we did was very disappointing.

'They got a spring in their step when the second one went in. But the lads have shown they can bounce back. They have shown that before.

'They have done that time and time again and the challenge now is for them to do it again.

'We have an FA Cup tie against Derby at the weekend and the carrot is for the player to show they can bounce back but they know they can do that.'
