Upton Park: Home of West Ham(credit: Wikipedia
Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish is sweating over the fitness of three key men for Sunday’s trip to West Ham. (kick-off 13.30 GMT)
Both Barry Ferguson and Cameron Jerome are struggling with ankle injuries, while a calf injury is threatening to keep Roger Johnson on the sidelines for this one.
If Johnson is not declared fit, new signing Curtis Davies could be handed his first start for Blues, but fellow new-boy Obafemi Martins is still unavailable as he awaits a visa.
West Ham manager Avram Grant could keep faith with the side that beat Blackpool last time out, but to do that he will be hoping that Danny Gabbidon overcomes a knock.
