McLeish disappointed by poor show.

ALEX McLeish was not best pleased with too many 'indifferent' performances by his players at Burnley.

Blues left Turf Moor with a valuable point after Cameron Jerome equalised 14 minutes from time.

But by no means did Blues play at their maximum throughout against the Clarets. "We didn't pass the ball well enough for large parts of the first half, stringing two or three passes together proved very difficult for us," the manager said.

"There were too many passes that went astray that disappointed me, and there were far too many indifferent performances.

We didn't show the kind of incisive play we did against QPR, or the kind of control we had in that game."

During the interval, McLeish 'reminded' his troops of their performance versus QPR and ordered that they quickened things up. "The response was the kind you would want," he said. "We started to work our way back into the game, we pressed them, we were a lot better.

"The substitutions worked for us and I felt we merited something from our play in the second half."
