ALAN Lee and Jason de Vos are two doubts for the New Year Day's Championship clash with league leaders West Brom.

The Blues skipper De Vos is struggling with bruised ribs and a bruised ankle while Lee has an Achilles injury.

Manager Jim Magilton said: “Jason is a doubt. Jason took a knock on his ankle and will also have an x-ray on his ribs to see if there is a real problem there.

“Alan has Achilles tendon pain and is a doubt too.”

That could pave the way for Jordan Rhodes to step in and Magilton said: “Jordan has looked bright when he has come on. He continues to develop and improve so we will see how he is. I would have no qualms about starting him.”
