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

Gaffers View: MK Dons Home (3-1)

Alex McLeish was was pleased with the way his side finished off their chances in the first half of the Carling Cup tie with MK Dons at St Andrews on Tuesday night.

Both Alexander Hleb and Nikola Zigic found the net for the first time in Blues shirts when they started a three goal superfast scoring spree with Craig Gardner to rush Blues into a 3-0 lead.

'It was a wee surprise in terms of our goalscoring exploits,' said McLeish to Sky Sports.

'We were clinical in that spell and there was a fair bit of quality on show as well with Beausejour, Hleb's finish and Zigic finally getting on the scoresheet.

'That will do Zigic good tonight, although maybe he could have had a hat-trick.

'We were delighted with Beausejour's contribution, his use of the ball for the second goal. That third goal was great as well from Gardner.

'It gives me food for thought, we've seen some pretty good performances tonight.

'But it was more important we got these guys some minutes towards their full sharpness.'
