Citys manager Gordon Strachan faces a selection headache in the centre of his
defence for Saturdays FA Cup fifth round tie at Everton.
Paul Williams is ruled out with the hamstring injury that he collected at Tottenham so
Strachan has to replace him.
Mo Konjic, Bosnias international centre-half, flew back into the country
yesterday after being snowbound for 36 hours, but Gary Breen will supply fierce
competition after helping the Republic of Ireland to beat Paraguay 2-0 last night.
Konjic was stranded at Ljubljana airport in Slovenia as he tried to fly his wife and
young son over to England to start their new life.
Heavy snow forced the airports closure and they spent 36 hours in the airport
lounge before flying into Heathrow in the early evening yesterday.
Meanwhile Strachan had a scare early in the week when striker Noel Whelan was sent home
with influenza. He missed training on Tuesday but was back today.
Strachan admitted today that he would love to have Dion Dublin back at Highfield Road.
Asked if Dublins departure for Aston Villa had caused him to alter Citys style
"A little bit. The two boys up front Whelan and Huckerby, have done very well, but
I would love to have Dion back."
He said that the Cup had nothing to do with their league situation.
"If you win you feel good in yourself and you sit by the fire on Sunday waiting
for the cup draw. If you lose you get on with playing the next league match. Admittedly if
you are in a little run as we are, a win in the cup does keep the momentum going.
"I suppose most people will mark down our match at Everton as a no score draw. But
fortune favours the brave and I think both teams will go for a win."
