Jerome To Undergo Surgery

The Blues striker will now face a race against time to be fit in time for the next League game against Portsmouth on 24th November.

"I'm going to get my groins done, both sides, and hopefully that will sort it," Jerome told the Birmingham Mail "It's been giving me trouble since pre-season really.

"I've just been getting on with it and maintaining it, having lots of massages and taking anti-inflammatory tablets. It's not gone away so we've got to try and get to the root of it.

"It's the international break now so hopefully I'll have a decent chance of being available when we play again."
