Birmingham Doubts About Having Bent Cup-Tied

Last updated : 30 December 2009 By Boro Mad


Bent has returned to the Midlands after his loan spell came to an end, but with Dave Kitson now back at Stoke and Leroy Lita suspended for Saturday's FA Cup third-round clash with Manchester City, Strachan has major problems.

Gordon Strachan: "Dave was only going to be here for six weeks and I am still speaking to Marcus right now.

"Jeremie (Aliadiere) is injured, Leroy - you know about Leroy - and that's it. The strikers have gone from the equation at the moment."
