Football - Hancox back for Blues

Mitch Hancox has provided Birmingham with a defensive boost having been declared fit for the trip to Brighton.

PA Sport Report

The left-back has been sidelined since early December having sustained a knee injury but returns to the fold for the clash on the south coast.

Boss Lee Clark will, however, be without fellow defenders Kyle Bartley (hamstring) and Dan Burn, who has been recalled by parent club Fulham.

On-loan strikers Jesse Lingard and Aaron Mclean have since returned to Manchester United and Hull respectively, while long-term absentees David Murphy, Matt Green, Neal Eardley (all knee), Jonathan Spector (thigh) and Akwasi Asante (hamstring) all remain sidelined.
