Keeper should make return - McLeish

Birmingham manager Alex McLeish is confident goalkeeper Ben Foster will be fit to face relegation-threatened Wolves this weekend.

The England international was forced off in the first half of Saturday's 5-0 defeat at Liverpool with a stiff back and a dead leg after being injured trying to prevent the second goal. However, neither problem has proved to be too serious and the 28-year-old is likely to keep his place in the starting line-up on Sunday.


"Ben has made great progress," McLeish told "We were worried about him after he hobbled off the bus on Saturday night but the last couple of days he's had a lot of treatment and relief and we expect him to make it on Sunday."
