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

McLeish Has Full Faith In Zigic

Blues boss Alex McLeish firmly believes that Nikola Zigic will start to show his best form before too very long after he has so far struggled to adapt to the Premier League.

Being used to playing in Spain with Valencia has made the adjustment to English football a little harder than expected for the striker.

So Cameron Jerome has been number one striker for Blues of late with Zigic starting from the bench.

But McLeish has faith in Zigic to eventually show his true worth.

He told Press Association Sport: 'Nikola is still adjusting to the English game. It is hurly burly, 100 miles an hour. On the continent he is used to balls being laid up to him and cushioning it and laying it off and keeping the play moving.

'It is a totally different game to the Spanish system and also the Serbian system as well. The players tend to get lazy as well when there is a big guy in the team because they just launch it forward. But we've got to try to get into the right positions to give him the right service.'
