Birmingham City Manager Alex McLeish was full of praise for the way his team came back from two goals down to knock Coventry City out of the FA Cup.

"We shouldn't have made it hard for ourselves because we started great," McLeish said to the Press Association.

"Coventry are obviously very dangerous up front. The big lad (Clive) Platt was a handful and of course we all know about Marlon King. But I knew there was goals in it for us.

"Bentley's was a cracker. We needed that. It was a turning point. If we'd gone in 2-0 down it would have been much tougher.

"The second half was again a measure of this squad's resilience and their desire not to give up until the final whistle."
