McLeish: Birmingham players have gone off the boil

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish admits his team has gone "off the boil".

McLeish admits his regulars are starting to tire.

"I think we are off the boil at the moment," he said. "Players have been looking a bit tired, players like Roger Johnson and Scott Dann came to the club recovering from operations and it's been a long, hard slog for them.

"They have got to pick themselves up and get us over the line the next few weeks.

"But in saying that, there's no disgrace in that. The players shouldn't be downhearted about that because we have punched above our weight, big time.

"Having been above teams like Fulham and Everton at this stage of the season is quite incredible.

"We have not scored a lot of goals. That's another massive compliment to the players that they can still be this far up the table."
