Bruce - A Sad Sight

Birmingham manager Steve Bruce looked a sad and broken man after Liverpool put seven past his side ... in their own back yard ... on Tuesday.

Sir Alex said he doesn't see any reason for Brum to sack the ex-United skipper, but you cannot help feel for the man as he brings his battered troops to Old Trafford at the weekend.

Not only is he looking relegation full in the face, but he has major injury problems ahead of Sunday's clash with United.

Strikers Emile Heskey (ankle) and Chris Sutton (groin and calf), midfielder Jamie Clapham (groin) and central defender Martin Taylor (groin) are under treatment.

Midfielder Muzzy Izzet (calf) is also battling to be fit along with Jiri Jarosik (groin) and midfielder Julian Gray (knee).

Central defender Matthew Upson is set to miss his ninth successive game with a groin problem.



Birmingham (from): Maik Taylor, Vaesen, Melchiot, Painter, Bruce, Martin Taylor, Latka, Cunningham, Lazaridis, Johnson, Clapham, Dunn, Kilkenny, Pennant, Clemence, Heskey, Forssell, Campbell.
