Football - Robinson return boosts Blues

Captain Paul Robinson returns to the fold for Birmingham's crunch trip to fellow strugglers Charlton.

PA Sport Report

The centre-back has missed the club's last two matches due to an automatic suspension having collected 10 bookings this season.

His comeback is a timely one after loan signing Tom Thorpe suffered ankle ligament damage on his Blues debut in last weekend's 3-3 draw against Derby and now faces a spell on the sidelines.

Fellow new boy Aaron Martin replaced Thorpe and will be hoping to start himself, as will striker Federico Macheda and winger Chris Burke having both stepped off the bench and grabbed late goals to snatch a point against the Rams. Left-back Mitch Hancox (ankle) is also fit for selection.
