Alex McLeish insists he has "moved on" from Birmingham's last home meeting with Arsenal when Eduardo suffered a broken leg.

The Gunners will return to St Andrew's for the first time on Saturday since the Croatia striker sustained the injury setback via a challenge from Blues defender Martin Taylor in February 2008," said McLeish.

"We have moved on. I don't want even want to talk about it. Eduardo is back playing which is great."

He added: "But we have moved on and I don't feel I need to comment on it. It is a couple of years ago.

"It is in the history books. Time moves on and I just brush all that stuff off my shoulder like a bit of dandruff.

"All I am interested in is this coming game with Arsenal."

McLeish believes Blues are a better side than two years ago and this season they have collected points from the other 'big guns' in Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

He said: "We are a better side than we were two seasons ago but it doesn't necessarily mean we will beat Arsenal.

"We will try and play our football against Arsenal but we have still got to make tackles - just as the Arsenal team have got to make tackles.

"We can't stand back and admire them. They are a hell of a good side."
