Blues trio face fitness fight

04 February 2011 11:00
Birmingham will check on the fitness of three players before finalising their side for Sunday's Barclays Premier League relegation clash with West Ham at Upton Park. Striker Cameron Jerome (ankle), midfielder Barry Ferguson (ankle) and central defender Roger Johnson (calf) are all battling to be available. Johnson was unable to train ahead of the midweek encounter with Manchester City but battled through the 90 minutes. If he is ruled out, boss Alex McLeish could hand a debut to new signing Curtis Davies. Birmingham are still waiting to see if loan signing Obafemi Martins will obtain a visa in time to face the Hammers.
