Parnaby missing for visit of Blackpool

Parnaby missing for visit of Blackpool

Stuart Parnaby will be unavailable for Saturday`s game against Blackpool at St Andrews on Saturday.

The defender has undergone scans that have shown ligament damage in his ankle after taking a knock at Bristol City on Tuesday. He could be out of action for a couple of weeks.

Manager Alex McLeish told the Birmingham Mail: 'There's no massive swelling, but there is a bit of ligament damage. We don't think he will be out for too long. It's not as bad as we first feared.'

Stephen Kelly is set to step in as a replacement

McLeish added: 'We've an excellent replacement to come in.

'Steve's been champing at the bit. He was a bit unlucky to be out at the start of the season because he got an injury and we liked what we saw from Parnaby, his attitude and his form was very good.

'Steve's wee injury stopped him starting the season.'
