Birmingham City midfielder Lee Bowyer won the praises of manager Alex McLeish after scoring another winner as Blues beat West Ham 1-0 at St Andrews on Saturday.

The 31 year old was on hand to score against his old side and that gave Blues three points for the third time recently.

McLeish said: ‘Lee’s exceeded my expectations and he’s been given a new lease of life. He’s enjoying himself and we’re getting the rewards on the field.

‘It’s difficult to put a price on what his goals are worth to us. He looks an absolute bargain now.

‘When we signed him from West Ham, he had had a couple of injuries and wasn’t playing regularly. Things weren’t right for him.

‘But what would he be worth now? The goals he’s got have been winning goals and it’s difficult to put a price on what they’d be worth to us if we manage to stay in the Premier League.’
