Double blow for Birmingham City

In football, one day you are in and the next day... you are out.

via Birmingham Mail and hat tip to the Fantasy Football Scout:

BLUES have been dealt more injury blows as their fears over James McFadden and Franck Queudrue were confirmed.

The pair both suffered [muscle] tears in the derby defeat by Villa and are probably set to be out of action for around a month...

Because of Queudrue joining the casualties – among them are Stephen Carr, Cameron Jerome, Marcus Bent, Gregory Vignal and Martin Taylor – either Scott Dann or Giovanny Espinoza will figure on Humberside.

Queudrue has been the star of a very stingy Birmingham City team and they'll miss him tremendously. McFadden's injury perhaps changes their attacking formation if McLeish replaces him with Chucho Benitez. The Blues are at Hull City this weekend, so this could be a match they've penciled in as a must 3-points. I could see them going to a 4-4-2 with Chucho partnering O'Connor from the start.
