Match Preview

Murphy may return David Murphy hopes to ease Birmingham's full-back crisis for their home encounter against fellow promotion contenders Middlesbrough. The left-back has missed City's last four games with a hip injury but returned to training on Thursday and will be assessed. Boss Chris Hughton will be keen to see Murphy return having lost Jonathan Spector to a thigh injury in midweek, joining fellow right-back Stephen Carr (knee) on the sidelines for the next couple of weeks. Nathan Redmond also trained on Thursday having missed the last two games with a slight knee problem and the winger should be fine. Midfielder Jordon Mutch serves the second game of a three-match suspension while striker Caleb Folan, signed on a short-term deal until the end of the season, managed 45 minutes for the reserves this week and is pushing for a possible place on the bench. Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray will be without influential midfielder Barry Robson for the trip. The Scotland international starts a three-match ban after being sent off during Sunday's 2-0 home defeat by Leeds. Compatriot Kevin Thomson will be assessed ahead of the game after being knocked out during the clash with the Yorkshiremen following his introduction as a substitute. Faris Haroun missed out altogether last weekend because of a hamstring problem, and he too will be assessed before Mowbray names his team. Goalkeeper Danny Coyne is back in light training after a calf injury, while striker Scott McDonald is making rapid progress as he continues his comeback from medial ligament damage, although he remains several weeks away from a return.
