Birmingham City have confirmed that James McFadden looks like being out of action for the next two months.

The 25-year-old Scotland international picked up an injury in the 1-0 home win over Derby County, scans later revealed ligament damage in his left knee.

Alex McLeish told the Birmingham Mail: ‘We took Faddy to see a top specialist and the verdict was that there was no cruciate damage, which was good, but there was medial ligament damage.

‘It will rule him out for about two months, which is a blow. Eight weeks, that looks like the maximum, but you never know and I don’t really like to put time-scales on injuries.

‘Unfortunately, these things happen. Not just here at Birmingham.’
