Changes To Be Made To Side Ahead Of Owls Clash

Alex McLeish is looking to be in the last eight of the FA Cup after this weekend but he looks likely to make changes to the side ahead of the game with Sheffield Wednesday.

City have been a busy side of late and that showed when they were beaten by Newcastle at home on Tuesday night and with a Carling Cup date with Arsenal to look forward to on February 27th, the game against the Owls is the ideal chance to rest a few players.

The Blues boss said: 'It will be an opportunity for some players to be rested and recharge their batteries and try and get an edge back.

'There was definitely a flatness about some performances the other night after a fantastic month.

'We will look at that closely and the FA Cup will allow us to utilise the squad. There are some fantastic players to come into the team.

'But I stress we still want to progress in the cup which is a fantastic competition.

'We made changes and played well in the last round against Coventry to come from two goals down to win.

'Gary Megson will also have his players fired up but we want to put on a performance in front of our fans and get through.'
