He's done really well, and he's come back really good. He just needs training and football. He's got stronger and stronger every day.

Garry Monk on David Davis

Midfielder David Davis is poised to return to action after long-term injury.

Davis, who fractured his ankle in July during pre-season, is set to figure for the Under-23s on Saturday in their PDL top of the table clash against Leeds United Under-23s at the Trillion Trophy Training Centre, Wast Hills (12 noon).

Davis was eased back into things at Blues training HQ a week ago when mixed teams of First Teamers, Under-18s and Under-23s played a 45-minute match.

Davis came through that unscathed and is ready to take this significant step on the road to recovery.

Manager Garry Monk said: "There is a plan for him to play.

"He's done really well, and he's come back really good. He just needs training and football. He's got stronger and stronger every day.

"He played a behind closed door game for 40 or 45 minutes. Just like we did with Isaac Vassell, it's about building him up and giving him a little bit more minutes on the pitch and then he should be in a position to put himself back in contention for squads and for competing for a starting place."

Defender Remeao Hutton is also in the squad for Saturdat's game. Hutton broke a bone in his foot during pre-season in the friendly against Solihull Moors and, like Davis, has been in full training for a while now.

Blues Under-23s can cut the gap on leaders Leeds to three points with victory.

The game was moved from Solihull Moors to Wast Hills after a pitch inspection on Friday afternoon.
