Former Blues striker Clinton Morrison's 53rd minute headed goal from a Sky Blues corner proved to be the match-winner at St Andrews on Monday evening.

"We've lost to a set-piece and we could have had five from set-pieces ourselves," McLeish said after the match.

"In the first half in particular we had a couple of inviting set-pieces and we got flicks on the end of them but we just couldn't get that ball over the line and the goalkeeper has also made some terrific reaction saves.

"We just lacked that killer instinct in the box.

"But it's not just about the attacking players it's about getting the service to them and it's about getting the right delivery."
