Upson's continued enforced absence means that Martin Taylor is likely to deputise for the remainder of the campaign alongside Kenny Cunningham - starting with tomorrow's home clash with his previous club Blackburn.A lot of soccer since our last posting. Good to see that some things never change. Birmingham losing players to injury has been a constant all season and will surely be the excuse given for their relegation. It will be interesting to see if next year these same players stay in the EPL on different teams (Dunn, Pennant, Jarosik, Melchiot, etc.) perform well and play consistently.
But former Blackburn midfielder David Dunn will almost certainly be unavailable with the calf injury sustained in the first half against Villa and leading scorer Jiri Jarosik is given only a 50-50 chance of recovering from a hamstring injury.
