Kevin Phillips and David Murphy could both return to the Blues squad for the match against Norwich City this weekend.
Blues' leading goalscorer Phillips has been sidelined since sustaining a hamstring injury half-an-hour into the 2-0 home win against Nottingham Forest on 14th February but manager Alex McLeish has revealed that the striker is now fit again and could be included in his squad for the visit of The Canaries to St Andrews on Saturday afternoon.
Murphy is also available for selection as he has now recovered from the injury he picked up in the 2-1 away defeat at Sheffield United on 1st March.
"Phillips has trained the whole week," McLeish told the Birmingham Mail.
"David Murphy has trained the whole week, so he is available for selection too.".
