Blues monitor Hleb

Alexander Hleb is Birmingham's major injury concern ahead of Sunday's Carling Cup final clash with his former club Arsenal at Wembley.The on-loan Barcelona player suffered a knee injury during the FA Cup fifth-round victory over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.A scan has shown severe bruising as opposed to any serious ligament damage and Blues will monitor his fitness.Central defender Martin Jiranek is available after missing the 3-0 win against the Owls with a thigh injury.Striker Cameron Jerome is also expected to recover from the ankle setback sustained during that game.On-loan Tottenham winger David Bentley and January signing Curtis Davies are both cup-tied.
