McLeish Gets Vote Of Confidence

Last updated : 07 February 2008 By Brian Cartlidge
Blues dropped into the bottom three of the table for the first time this season following the home draw against Derby at the weekend but Gold is convinced that McLeish can turn results around and keep the club in the Premier League.

"As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't change Alex McLeish at all," the Blues chairman told the Birmingham Mail.

"I've been enormously impressed by what he and his coaches have done in the short time they've been here.

"I know they definitely care about the club and that's the approach we all need to take now.

"None of us can sit back at the moment. It's a collective responsibility. Yes, it was disappointing we didn't beat Derby. It was a must-win game and one I thought we would win.

"That was a cup final, now every game's a cup final. Now we have to play against teams where we might have settled for a draw in the past, but now we have to look for three points.

"My Saturday was spoiled by the result and then when Fulham came back to beat Villa I thought everything was conspiring against us."
