Wembley match winner Jonathan Woodgate is a doubt for Saturday's trip to Birmingham in the Barclays Premier League.

Wembley match winner Jonathan Woodgate is a doubt for Saturday's trip to Birmingham in the Barclays Premier League.

The central defender's man of the match display against Chelsea came despite picking up a sprained ankle in the first half of Sunday's final and he's unlikely to feature at St Andrews.

However, there is good news on the defensive front as Michael Dawson (hamstring) and Gilberto (calf) are both close to a return to full training.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto is progressing well from a knee injury while Gareth Bale hopes to come out of the protective boot on his damaged ankle next week.
