Mido is our only serious doubt before Saturday's Premiership clash against Birmingham City at St Andrews.

Mido is our only serious doubt before Saturday's Premiership clash against Birmingham City at St Andrews.

The striker will have a late fitness test on a groin problem. "Mido didn’t train today," confirmed Martin Jol at Thursday’s pre-Birmingham media briefing. “That’s our main worry.

"Andy Reid has been back in training and played for the reserves, so he's fine. Dean Marney is also back but Lee Barnard is out.

"Mounir El Hamdaoui is out for six weeks after the operation on his groin."

For the record, Andy is back after a knee problem, Dean has recovered from a ruptured Achilles and Lee has a foot strain.
