McLeish voices Phillips concerns

The 37-year-old veteran picked up a calf injury during Birmingham’s

1-0 friendly defeat to Mallorca on Saturday after he had come on as

a 74th-minute substitute for Cameron Jerome. He hobbled out of the

action at St Andrew’s and McLeish believes the early signs are not

good for the striker. McLeish told Sky Sports News: “He said it

felt like a bullet in his leg, his thigh muscle exploded. “So his

early signs are not good, it looks as if he could be out for a

while with that one. “Hopefully the diagnosis over the next 24

hours proves different but he’ll be getting scanned tomorrow, well

in fact Monday it will probably have to be now. “It doesn’t look

good for the wee man and more importantly for the club as a whole.”
