City chief laments scoring record

04 April 2009 02:44
Second-placed Blues have the best defensive record in the league, conceding 33 goals in 40 games, but they have netted 47 - leaders Wolves have a tally of 71 - and are only the 14th highest-scoring club in the division.

McLeish told the Birmingham Mail: "We have struggled to score goals. I think everybody forgets that only two of our forwards are real goalscorers - [Garry] O'Connor and [Kevin] Phillips are real finishers.

"We definitely haven't had as good of a return from the strikers as we would have liked this season but I think, to be fair to the strikers, I don't think the service to them from midfield has been outstanding all season."
