Latest injury news emerges at Birmingham City

Birmingham manager Garry Monk has no fresh injury concerns ahead of his side’s clash with Preston North End tomorrow.

The Blues are all but out of the play-off hunt after suffering back to back defeats against Aston Villa and Millwall, but they could give themselves a glimmer of hope by beating in-form Preston.

Alex Neil’s side are above them in the table and on an astonishing run of form which has propelled them from the lower reaches of the division to touching distance of the top six.

Birmingham City’s official Twitter account has confirmed that the only absentee is Maxime Colin, who missed the last two defeats.

Monk is also quoted as saying he has some tough decisions to make after arguably the worst performance of the season from his side in midweek.

Relegation-haunted Millwall swept them to one side with relative ease, winning 2-0 courtesy of a Ben Thompson brace.

The Blues have now failed to score in over 300 minutes of football and are seemingly set for another season in the Championship.

The Verdict

It’s easy to look at the Blues current form and be disparaging, but their efforts this season should be commended.

They showed a steel and fight in the early exchanges that belied their tough summer and the threat of FFP sanctions.

It could be a torrid week for them though, there’s an imminent hearing at which they might suffer a points deduction.
