Phillips set for long spell on sidelines

irmingham striker Kevin Phillips has been ruled out for a "considerable period" of time after he tore a thigh muscle at the weekend.

Phillips suffered the problem in Saturday's friendly defeat to Real Mallorca and it was immediately feared he could be out for some time.

Those fears were today confirmed by a scan which showed a ripped muscle.

Alex McLeish said: "Kevin has torn his thigh muscle and will be out for a while - it will be a considerable period.

"But he is a notoriously quick healer so anything will be a bonus."
