Birmingham City goalkeeper Matija Sarkic will miss the rest of the season after dislocating his shoulder.

Blues boss Lee Bowyer described the injury as “bad” and said losing Sarkic was a “massive disappointment”.

Sarkic has kept 10 clean sheets in 23 games with Blues 18th in the table, eight points above the relegation zone.

The loss of Sarkic now means Neil Etheridge, who lost his place to the Montenegrin when he contracted Covid-19 at the start of the season, is likely to come back into the side.

Bowyer is also understood to be considering recalling Zach Jeacock from his loan at Salford to provide back-up along with Connal Trueman.
