Selection Poser For Bruce

Last updated : 07 April 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

The Blues boss has to decide on how many players returning from injury will begin the game at the JJB Stadium on Saturday evening.

Matthew Upson, Mario Melchiot, Muzzy Izzet and Chris Sutton are all available for selection again having recovered from various injuries and will travel with the squad for the live television clash.

All apart from Upson have been in full training over the past ten days, the England international centre-back only taking part in first team training for the first time in two months on Thursday.

Stephen Clemence has been effectively ruled out for the season with a torn hamstring whilst Nicky Butt is ruled out of the game against Paul Jewel's side with a hamstring strain.
