Alex McLeish felt his Birmingham side produced one of their best performances of the season by overcoming Bristol City.

An own goal by home captain Louis Carey and a Cameron Jerome strike helped the Blues maintain their fine start to the Championship season with a 2-1 success at Ashton Gate.

Former Scotland boss McLeish said: "Not many teams will come here and win. We won without being pretty against Doncaster on Saturday and this time we won looking a lot more pretty."

He added: "That suggests a major improvement on the previous performance and it was a great three points for us against very good opposition.

"We played really well in the first half but gave ourselves problems in the second by giving the ball away. Overall, however, I am thrilled with the lads."
