No new concerns for Birmingham manager Gary Rowett

Birmingham manager Gary Rowett has no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Burnley.

The manager is likely to have a fully fit squad and could recall Arsenal loanee Jon Toral after the midfielder started Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to Leeds on the bench.

Rowett also wants to give young winger Viv Solomon-Otabor more game time during the closing stages of the season as he prepares him for a bigger role next year.

Neal Eardley, out of contract at the end of the campaign, is sidelined with a serious knee injury which will keep him out until next season.

Sam Vokes is a doubt for Burnley's trip to the midlands.

The Wales international striker came off with a groin strain in the win over Leeds last weekend but, with Middlesbrough visiting Turf Moor in a crucial top-of-the-table clash next Tuesday, boss Sean Dyche may be cautious.

Midfielder David Jones also came off with a bout of illness, though Dyche is more confident he will be in the mix to feature.

Striker Lukas Jutkiewicz is still absent for Dyche's side but he is nearing a return from a long-term knee injury.
