Football - Thorpe back for Blues

Tom Thorpe will hope to make it second time lucky in Birmingham's home clash with Bournemouth.

PA Sport Report

The young centre-back could only manage 14 minutes on his Blues debut at the start of February but has recovered from his ankle injury and rejoined on loan from Manchester United on Thursday.

Emyr Huws is a doubt with the hip problem which forced him to miss the midweek victory over Millwall, while Lee Novak (knock) could also be absent once more.

The 3-2 win at the Den ended Birmingham's five-match winless run and moved them eight points clear of the drop zone.
