Zigic and Hall boost Blues
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Birmingham's injury problems are easing as a number of players are hoping to return for the trip to Lee Clark's old club Huddersfield.
The Blues boss has Nikola Zigic and Rob Hall available after the duo missed the FA Cup third round draw with Leeds at the weekend. The Serbian striker was suspended while the on-loan winger was refused permission to play in the competition by parent-club West Ham.
They could be joined in the squad by defender Paul Caddis (hamstring), strikers Peter Lovenkrands (calf) and Marlon King (knee) and the versatile Jonathan Spector (ankle) who have all returned to training.
But Clark remains without defenders Will Packwood (broken leg), Stephen Carr and David Murphy (both knee), midfielders Papa Bouba Diop (hamstring), Hayden Mullins (calf), Darren Ambrose (knee) and Keith Fahey (compassionate leave) as well as striker Akwasi Asante (hamstring).
