McLeish: Birmingham in Carling Cup to win it

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish says they're in the Carling Cup to win it after victory over MK Dons.

The Scot sees no reason why Blues should not be taken as serious contenders and will be hoping Saturday's draw is kind.

"Why not?" he said. "We've had the luck of the draw so far with two teams from a lower division (Rochdale and MK Dons) but both of those teams were a credit to the Football League.

"I see more and more young coaches encouraging the ball-playing side of the game."
