Ciaran Clark OUT of Newcastle's visit to Birmingham
Rafa Benitez has suffered an injury blow on the eve of Newcastle United's game at St Andrew's.
Benitez, already without DeAndre Yedlin, has had to rule defender Ciaran Clark out of the Championship fixture against Birmingham City.
Clark was forced off against Fulham last weekend with a knee problem.
And United manager Benitez said: "He has a problem with his medial ligament. He will not be available."
Yedlin, meanwhile, is sidelined with a thigh injury.
