Football - Novak poised to face former club

Lee Novak and Olly Lee are pushing for recalls as Birmingham play host to Huddersfield.

PA Sport Report

Striker Novak, who swapped the Terriers for Blues last summer, and midfielder Lee were dropped to the bench for Tuesday's narrow 1-0 defeat at Watford in favour of Albert Rusnak and Brian Howard.

Fit-again left-back Mitch Hancox did not make the matchday 18 at Vicarage Road having overcome an ankle injury and is again pushing for involvement.

Jonathan Spector is closing in on his return but this game comes too soon, while fellow long-term absentees Tom Thorpe (ankle), David Murphy, Matt Green and Neal Eardley (all knee) are unavailable.
