Birmingham boss Alex McLeish admits he's impressed by Billy Davies' management at Nottingham Forest.

Brum saw off Forest last night in the FA Cup.

"Their form speaks for itself, Billy's probably surprised at the rate they're going at," McLeish said.

"To have gone so long unbeaten he's trying to calm the jets as well in terms of expectation levels and I can understand that type of management, it's a similar situation here."
