Football - Double boost for Blues

Jesse Lingard and Mitch Hancox are expected to be fit for struggling Birmingham's trip to Huddersfield.

PA Sport Report

Forward Lingard has missed City's last three matches due to a knee injury while left-back Hancox sat out of last weekend's disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Charlton due to illness.

David Murphy is to undergo a scan on his swollen knee and is again expected to miss out, along with Jonathan Spector (thigh), Neal Eardley (knee) and Akwasi Asante (hamstring).

Midfielder Wade Elliott serves the second game of his three-match suspension while recent signing Dariusz Dudka continues to build up his match fitness.
