Football - Morrison set to boost Blues

Ravel Morrison is expected to be fit for Birmingham's crunch Saturday evening derby clash at local rivals Wolves.


The on-loan midfielder was forced off at half-time in last Friday's 3-2 win over Middlesbrough nursing a dead leg.

But he does face a battle for his position with replacement Wade Elliott coming on to score the second goal in Blues' victory, while Papa Bouba Diop was again on form for the club's Under-21 side in midweek.

One player who will miss the 5:20pm kick-off, however, is Darren Ambrose having injured his knee in training this week, although the midfielder has only been a fringe player of late.

Full-backs David Murphy and Stephen Carr (both knee) are long-term absentees while striker Akwasi Asante (hamstring) remains sidelined.
