BIRMINGHAM v TRANMERE.

Birmingham defender Gary Breen is out for a month, after he was attacked while leaving a London restaurant.

City's Republic of Ireland cap underwent a hand operation yesterday and is also suffering from head injuries. Better news for boss Trevor Francis is that left-back Martin Grainger rejoins the squad for the first time since suffering a serious knee injury a week before the season began.

Ivano Bonetti is back with Rovers after the collapse of his move to home- town club Brescia. But player-boss John Aldridge is likely to keep an unchanged team after a run of four consecutive defeats was ended with a last-gasp equaliser against Huddersfield on Boxing Day.
