Football: Bowen gets dual role green light.

BIRMINGHAM first-team coach Mark Bowen has been given the all-clear to continue combining his role at St Andrews with the job of assistant to Wales manager Mark Hughes.

Former Welsh international Bowen has discussed the dual role with Birmingham's manager Steve Bruce and hopes to be able to continue his work within both camps.

He said, ``There is a gentleman's agreement between the club and Mark allowing me to devote time to both jobs.

``Everyone involved in the situation are sensible people and so I don't see it being a problem.

``The only complication might arise from the European Championship qualifiers which include a couple of double-headers that would take me away for a week.

``We will cross that bridge when we come to it.''

Birmingham won promotion to the Premiership after beating Norwich on penalties in the Division One play-off final at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium earlier this month.
