Duo Set To Return

Last updated : 02 January 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

McSheffrey, who has been sidelined with a knee injury, and Kelly, who has been troubled all season with a groin injury, have not played a first team game since the 1-0 home defeat to Blackpool at the end of September.

"McSheffrey is full steam ahead now, Kelly is back into the squad as well," Blues boss Alex McLeish told the Birmingham Mail.

"Ideally we would like them to have had a couple of practice games under their belts, but the physio has said they are available for selection.

Elsewhere, both Seb Larsson and James McFadden are unlikely to play in the game against Wolves at St Andrews on Saturday afternoon as they are both struggling with groin injuries.
