Birmingham have been boosted by the news that David Dunn's hamstring injury is not as serious as first feared.
Dunn limped off with a hamstring problem during Birmingham's win at Derby last weekend.
The former Blackburn star has been plagued with hamstring problems for some time and he missed a large chunk of last season with a hamstring injury.
Blues boss Steve Bruce feared Dunn could be sidelined for a lengthy period with the new injury, but scans have shown the problem is not too serious.
"Dunny had a scan on Monday, and we expect him to be out for 14 to 21 days," Bruce told the club's official website.
