Player Problems

Chris Hughton has admitted to having a few problems regarding player availability ahead of Birmingham’s Championship league clash against Hull City at St Andrew’s tomorrow night.

Birmingham City Boss Has Injury ProblemsGuirane’ N’Daw has already been ruled out after failing to shake off the hamstring injury that he picked up in last Tuesday’s 1-0 victory over Portsmouth. And question marks still hang over the fitness of Marlon King and Nikola Zigic.

“N’Daw is out and will miss the game which is a blow for us, but he’s making good progress,” Hughton told

“We’re hoping to put the strongest team out possible, but we also have a few problems which we need to give until tomorrow to find out about.

“Ziggy and Marlon are doubts, so we’ll give them the longest time possible.

“We’ve got one or two other knocks as well, but we’ll try and work around it the best way we can.”

    This dont look good, especially up front. Hull are in there challenging the play off places and its a game Blues will need to win. Things seem to be slow during this loan window and though CH wants to make sure he brings the right type of player in Blues could be caught short when it matters most.

  2. Tom Ross has just tweeted the following: ‘Blues boss Chris Hughton told me today that he should have a new signing in a day or two while he still hopes to bring in another couple.’ – A striker is a necessity.

    Too late for tomorrow, though. If we only have Rooney available, then we won’t be expecting a goal fest from the forward(s).

    If both King and Zigic are out then the only logical formation is a 4-4-1-1 with Elliott behind Rooney and Redmond providing some much needed pace on the wings.
