BIRMINGHAM manager Alex McLeish bemoaned his side’s defending early on at Anfield on Saturday, admitting it ruined their game-plan from the off.
“The first goal for us was a killer blow, losing it so early because you are coming here to frustrate,” he said.
“It disrupted totally our plans. The first two goals were really soft, we have to do better.
“For the second goal there was a big hole in the centre of our defence and that is most unlike us.
“Quite simply the boys have got to get back to their best.
“We know today was a bad day at the office but I don’t believe it will affect morale.”
