Birmingham's David Dunn has been hit with a new injury scare, but thankfully it is only expected to rule him out for Saturday's-crucial trip to Blackburn Rovers.
The 25-year-old England international played his first game in ten months on Sunday, as he made an impressive 20- minute cameo appearance against Aston Villa.
However, despite playing for an hour for Birmingham's reserves against Newcastle on Tuesday, the midfielder has a slight calf strain, which will rule him out of the relegation battle at Ewood Park.
The good news for Birmingham supporters is that it has not related to Dunn's hamstring and back problems that have kept him out for ten months and is more likely to be reaction, as his body gets used to the rigours of first-team football again.
This minor setback only adds credence to Steve Bruce's policy of easing Dunn back into the fray and using him sparingly until he is fully match-fit.
