Hleb In Danger Of Missing Final?
Alex Hleb stands a chance of missing the Carling Cup final this weekend after he picked up an injury in the game against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
The injury was the only low point of the day, Blues easily progressed into the quarter finals, but a clattering tackle by James O'Connor on the former Arsenal player meant he had to be taken off and ended up leaving on crutches.
Alex McLeish said: 'The latest is Alex is limping heavily.
'We presume we can get something done on Sunday and we will know after that if there is any damage.
'It is his knee. We don't believe there is any cruciate problems but he got a fair rattle. The guy was very late in the tackle.
'He is a great player and we still believe he will make an impact for us at some stage this season and, hopefully, he will be okay for the final.'
