McLeish Cautious On Bowyer Return

Last updated : 12 March 2009 By Brian Cartlidge
The Blues midfielder was surprisingly missing from the team-sheet for the match against Barnsley at Oakwell on Tuesday night having sustained a groin injury late into the home win against Southampton last weekend and is rated at only 50-50 for the game at The Keepmoat on Saturday evening.

"It's much more beneficial for us that we get him back for the rest of the games," McLeish told BBC Radio WM

"We could play him in this one, then he breaks down and then we don't have him."

"He's much better than he was before Tuesday's game but still less than 50-50."
