Gaffers View: Villa home CC 2-1.
Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish says there is no doubt that his side deserves to be in the semi final of the Carling Cup after watching his side out battle Aston Villa at St Andrews on Wednesday.

West Ham were the team destined to take on the winners of the Second City derby and Nikola Zigic booked that place with a late goal that sent Blues fans wild.

McLeish said:'We earned the right to be in the semi-finals and I'm really proud of the players. It was a fantastic effort by them and I felt we deserved it.

'We finally got our reward in the second half when they were probably the better side in terms of possession but never really hurt us. I felt really pleased for them, really delighted.

'They've met a lot of challenges this team over the past year-and-a-half. This was another one and they've risen to it.'

Any Brummie fan not ashamed of events after the game should hang their heads in shame, some posters on another site were calling for both teams to be banned. I argued that would be punishing genuine fans, reading a couple of posters on here I'm changing my mind
