Mullen shrugs off defender link

Anthony Gerrard
Gerrard was Walsall's player of the season in 2007-8

Walsall manager Jimmy Mullen says he is not worried by the appearance of Birmingham counterpart Alex McLeish at the Saddlers' game with Darlington.

McLeish's presence at the League Cup tie fuelled speculation Birmingham were preparing a move for 22-year-old defender Anthony Gerrard.

But Mullen told BBC WM: "For him [McLeish] to be at our game, he's obviously doing his homework.

"On which individual, be it at Walsall or Darlington, I don't know."

Mullen added: "Obviously I've known Alex for 20 years and he's a great man.

"Alex will make sure he's got his finger on the pulse of every football club in this area, he prides himself on that."
