Birmingham boss Alex McLeish says that his new signings will impress supporters over the coming weeks.

Robin Shroot made his debut in last week’s FA Cup game against Wolves, Lee Bowyer, Hameur Bouazza and Scott Sinclair made their debuts and did well against Cardiff on Saturday.

‘First impressions were great, I was delighted with the start we made and then the second half we got bogged down a wee bit,’ he said.

‘We got in some good positions but never really got final balls into the box, too many went out of play.

‘I think the (new) players started pretty well and, at the end of the day, they did as well as anybody else in the second half – there’s more to come from them, no doubt about it.

‘I dont think Scott has played at this level for a wee while and we never really got much service to him, so we’ve got to work on these things. I think Bowyer had a very solid 90 minutes and used all his Premier League experience and Bouazza was maybe more involved than Scott was, we have to work on getting Scott on the ball more.’
