Blues v Norwich at St Andrews Stadium - Match Preview

The defender limped off in Tuesday's 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday but boss Gary Rowett is hopeful he can make a swift recovery.

Demarai Gray is set to feature after Blues rejected a fourth bid from Bournemouth of £3.5million on Wednesday.

Gavin Gunning and Matt Green (both knee) are still long-term absentees.

Midfielder Jonny Howson completes a three-match ban for Norwich after his dismissal in the win at Bournemouth.

Defender Ryan Bennett (hamstring) is also absent while midfielder Alex Tettey (groin) will again be assessed.

Former captain and 2012/13 player of the year Sebastien Bassong will be looking to make his first appearance for the club since April.

Bassong was an unused substitute in the home loss to Brentford last Saturday but impressed in the Under-21's win over Borussia Monchengladbach in midweek, playing 61 minutes
