Football - Burke back for Blues

Chris Burke returns to contention for Birmingham's home clash against fellow strugglers Charlton.

PA Sport Report

The Scotland international winger missed Tuesday's thrilling Capital One Cup tie against Stoke due to a hamstring strain.

Striker Jesse Lingard and left-back David Murphy (both knee) are not yet ready to return, while new signing Dariusz Dudka needs to build up his match fitness before being considered.

Wade Elliott starts a three-match suspension following his red card in midweek, and boss Lee Clark will also assess the fitness of one or two players having played close to an hour-and-a-half with only 10 men against the Potters.
