Two Out, Two Doubtful
Birmingham City will definitely be without the services of two players on Saturday ahead of the trip to Ewood Park. Winger David Bentley and defender Martin Jiranek have both been ruled out.
Bentley misses out with a groin problem which is still giving him some jip, while Jiranek is still ruled out with a toe injury that he had to have surgery on.
And there could be more bad news if Nikola Zigic and Obafemi Martins are ruled out, they are both rated as 50/50.
Eight-goal leading scorer Nikola Zigic and fellow striker Obafemi Martins are given only a 50-50 chance of being fit by Blues boss Alex McLeish.
They are both suffering with groin injuries, Zigic also has a hip problem.
James McFadden and Scott Dann remain on the sidelines, unlikely to feature again this term.
