Eck pleased with Birmingham's Muamba
"With the ball, I think that's a part of his game that he can improve on.
"But the other things he does, he more than makes up for it - breaking up the opposition play, not allowing them to get any momentum - these are all vital for us."
McLeish added: "While he is dedicated to working on the fine arts of the game and doing extra then it's got to help and it's something I really think not enough players do. Muamba deserves credit for that."
