Birmingham boss Steve Bruce is delighted to have David Dunn and Nicky Butt back.Steve Bruce has revealed his delight at having midfielders David Dunn and Nicky Butt at his disposal again.
Former Blackburn star Dunn made his return from a lengthy lay-off during Birmingham's 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday, and impressed his manager.
"If there was any consolation from losing to Villa on Sunday, it was the return of Dunny," said Bruce. "He came off the bench after 10 months out and just oozed that bit of class.
"We know what he can do for us, he is a fabulous player. Let's hope he can steer clear of injuries. We are just glad to have him back."
Butt, meanwhile, will be available again for Saturday's clash at Blackburn, having served his four-match suspension.
"It was a big blow to lose Nicky when we did because I was just detecting that the "real" Nicky Butt was coming to the fore again," said Bruce.
