Gardner a major doubt for Birmingham

18 November 2010 11:00
Birmingham are concerned about the fitness of key midfielder Craig Gardner ahead of Saturday's home clash with Chelsea.

Gardner, City's leading scorer with four goals this season, suffered an ankle injury during last weekend's goalless draw at Manchester City.

The former Aston Villa player, 23, has seen a specialist this week and Blues boss Alex McLeish is waiting anxiously on the results.
