McLeish Happy With Clean Sheet

McLeish Happy With Clean Sheet

Birmingham manager Alex McLeish was pleased that his side managed a clean sheet against a stubborn Hull City side at St Andrews on Saturday.

Last time out Manchester City put five past Blues and McLeish was looking for a big improvement as he prepared his side to take on a Hull side fighting for their lives.

'After the five breakaway goals from City last week, I wanted a clean sheet and I'm proud of the lads and the way we bounced back,' he told Sky Sports.

'Maybe we didn't have the imagination or creativity in the final third but we still showed a lot of professionalism.

'We have proved time and time again that we can bounce back. You have bad performances from time to time but the players have got it in their character to respond.

'You have to dust it off like a bit of dandruff on your shoulder and show what you can do.

'At the start of the season people were thinking we would maybe win 10 or 12 games to get us safe but the lads have punched above their weight considerably.

'The difference between the top six sides and other clubs is that they can do it a bit more consistently.

'Teams with lesser quality and capabilities can sometimes fizzle out but it is not down to lack of effort.'
