McLeish hoping break boosts Blues

Blues have seen their last two games called off due to adverse weather conditions, meaning they have not played since being beaten by Wolves on December 12th.

But the Blues boss reports his team's training schedule has returned to normal, having been affected by the sheer weight of snowfall in the midlands earlier in the month.

"There's that mid-winter break we've all been asking for," McLeish joked.

"I don't think the players have lost any sharpness because we've had a really good week in training.

"They were like kids with toys, getting out on the grass, because we did have some problems clearing the snow from the grass in the previous week, so training was interrupted."
