Martins cleared for action

11 February 2011 10:30
Birmingham newcomer Obafemi Martins is included in the squad for the first time for Saturday's home Barclays Premier League clash with Stoke after the Nigerian obtained a visa this week. Blues boss Alex McLeish has to decide whether to start Martins or put him on the substitutes' bench, with the former Newcastle forward having not played competitively for two months. McLeish has a full squad to choose from with the exception of long-term injury victims James McFadden and Scott Dann. Goalkeeper Ben Foster has recovered from the thumb injury which prevented him being involved in England's midweek friendly in Denmark.
