Birmingham boss McLeish gives Jaidi hope

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is pleased to have Raidi Jaidi available.

"He's reached a level of fitness where he's much sharper now," said the manager. "He was solid the other weekend against Spurs and as long as my centre-backs keep it relatively simple and don't over-do things, that's all you can ask of them.

"We have got to then rely on the few up ahead to give us the quality in the last third.

"And I'm sure the centre-backs will chip in with a goal of two when required.

"All round, I think we've got a pretty good balance in the team just now."

Jaidi is off contract at the end of this season.
