The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BIRM­ING­HAM boss Lee Clark has re­as­sured fans that Mitch Han­cox will be back for pre-sea­son af­ter he missed yes­ter­day’s clash with Black­burn.

Left-back Han­cox broke his hand af­ter a col­li­sion with Car­los Edwards saw him fall awk­wardly over an ad­ver­tis­ing hoard­ing last week­end against Ip­swich.

“Un­for­tu­nately scans show that Mitch has bro­ken two bones in his hand,” said Clark.We didn’t risk him for our last league game, al­though we would have done so if it had been a play­off fix­ture.

“The in­jury is not too se­ri­ous and he will be ready to re­turn for the start of pre­sea­son.”
