Wednesday shape up for ‘six-pointer’ at Birmingham

Birmingham City

Wednesday will be in good shape fitness-wise for tomorow evening’s ‘relegation clash’ at Birmingham.

The Blues’ thumping 4-0 home defeat by Watford on Saturday has put them firmly in trouble towards the foot of the table while victory for the Owls would take us above them and possibly into 16th place – depending on other results on a busy night in the Championship.

Dave Jones said that if we had played on Saturday then we might have been missing four players through injury but that he would now wait for fitness checks on just one or two of the squad before naming his team.

Reda Johnson will once again be absent with his foot injury. He is still undergoing a course of injections on the problem but did manage to take part in some running exercises today.
