Birmingham's Forssell has successful op

Birmingham City striker Mikael Forssell has had a successful hernia operation.

City assistant manager Eric Black said: "Mikael had the operation on Tuesday and everything went well. He's gone back to Finland for a few days now to rest and recover.

"He has a slight tear which had opened up a little bit but, with modern surgical techniques, it can be as little as three weeks before somebody is playing again.

"We hope to have him back training in the next seven to 10 days and hopefully he won't miss too many games with the international break going on for two weeks."
