Birmingham duo to miss Man United clash

Experienced Birmingham City duo Lee Carsley and Stuart Parnaby have been ruled out of Saturday's home Premier League clash against Manchester United through injury.

Midfielder Carsley suffered ankle ligament ligament damage during the FA Cup tie with Nottingham Forest while full-back Parnaby pulled a back muscle in the goalless draw at the City Ground.

Blues boss Alex McLeish is refusing to put a time-scale on how long the duo will be out of action except to confirm they will not be fit to face the Red Devils.

McLeish said: "Lee and Stuart are both out for Saturday. We've not put a timescale on when they'll be fit again.

"Lee has got an ankle ligament injury and Stuart has pulled a muscle in his back, so we're not sure how long they'll be sidelined for."

Parnaby made a rare start against Forest as regular right-back Stephen Carr was serving a one game ban for incurring five bookings during the current campaign.

Carsley has had to play second fiddle to the Lee Bowyer-Barry Ferguson partnership for most of the campaign.

But the duo are still considered as important back-up players by McLeish who is continuing to step up his search to bring in new blood during the January transfer window.

Sporting Gijon midfielder Michel is close to finalising a deal to move to St. Andrews while McLeish is understood to have put in a bid - believed to be around £11 million - for Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones.
