Dugarry made to wait for debut

Last updated : 03 January 2003 By Brian Cartlidge
Dugarry will have to wait until next Sunday's televised Premiership clash against Arsenal at St.Andrew's to make his debut for Blues.

Blues have not yet received international clearance from the French Football Association for Dugarry although Senegalese defender Ferdinand Coly has been cleared to play his first game for Blues on Sunday.

Defenders Michael Johnson and Steve Vickers are rated as only 50/50 to be fit for the Fulham game and Martin Grainger, who suffered a dead leg in the New Year's Day clash at Leeds, and remains doubtful also.

Striker Geoff Horsfield and midfielder Aliou Cisse are definitely ruled out because of suspensions.
