Goal return worries McLeish
03 Oct 2008 - 07:30:21
Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish has urged his strikers to find their shooting boots in the near future.
The Blues have conceded only six goals in their nine league games this season, but McLeish is unhappy at a return of just 12 goals at the other end.
He told the Birmingham Mail: "I still believe we can do even better with the final thing, the execution of the final pass, the finish.
"We can keep possession better and I think the forwards might benefit more if we can do that. We've got five forwards, all of a good, high level.
"A few of them have had a good crack at things and we now need somebody to set the marker. I've got to get our boys firing, we need these fellas to start scoring goals.
"Wolves and Reading are showing the way to goal at the moment, but once these guys start firing, as I am sure they will, then we will click."
