Clapham Comeback Continues

Last updated : 07 April 2004 By Brian Cartlidge

The Blues left back made his first full-team appearance in almost two months as a second half substitute in the Premiership game against Fulham last weekend following a spell on the sidelines with a hamstring injury and then a bout of shingles.

Now Clapham, who played for the full 120 minutes of Blues Reserves 4-2 Birmingham Senior Cup defeat against Moor Green last week, is once again included in Keith Bertschin's side for the game against Manchester City at Damson Park tonight, kick-off, 7pm.

Blues: Bennett, Parratt, Clapham, Hall, Carter, Till, Kilkenny, Cisse, John, Barrowman, Motteram. Subs: Doyle, Howell, Blake, Howland, Hamilton.

Man City: Kevin Ellegaard, Nedum Onuoha, Danny Tiatto, Glenn Whelan, Paddy McCarthy, Stephen Jordan, Lee Croft, Joey Barton, Stephen Elliott, Bradley Wright-Phillips, Jamie Tandy. Subs: Matthew Russell, Ashley Timms, Kelvin Etuhu, Michael McGinlay, Sam Williamson.
