McLeish might freshen up Blues.

ALEX McLeish has hinted at making changes for tomorrow's home game against Hull City.

And if he does, it would not represent a slight as such on those who make way, he insisted.

"The ones who played last week will want to atone for the result and it's the same with the guys on the sidelines. They will want to get a shout," he said.

"I have got options. Will I freshen it up? Maybe. We still have terrific home form. I am mindful of that. To leave players out, it would definitely not be because they are playing badly.

"It would need to be on a rotation basis if I feel that somebody else could be doing with a game.

"And it won't harm or disrupt the harmony of the team because we didn't play badly at Man City last week, we defended badly in a few situations, but we didn't play badly."

Christian Benitez could come into the equation as well as alterations to the Blues midfield, although McLeish would not specify at all.

McLeish said the Eastlands battering was 'murder' for him, and his players were still smarting.

"I hate losing any game but to lose five goals, especially for a team that has been quite mean in losing goals, was tough.

"I think they have been smarting. "Knowing the characters we have at the back, they would be very unhappy with that scoreline."
