Lita poised for Blues bow
Leroy Lita is in contention for his Birmingham debut at Nottingham Forest.
The experienced Swansea striker has linked up with Blues on a three-month loan deal and provides welcome ammunition to an attack which has managed only four goals in the opening four league fixtures. Centre-back Curtis Davies (ankle) and striker Nikola Zigic (foot) are both expected to be fit having missed the 1-0 win over Peterborough last time out, while full-back David Murphy is also okay having battled through his niggling knee injury over the closing stages. But Darren Ambrose and Stephen Carr (both thigh) are still struggling and will be assessed as late a possible. Midfielder Keith Fahey returned to full training at the start of this week following his troublesome groin injury and it remains to be seen whether manager Lee Clark will include the Republic of Ireland international in his matchday 18.
