Dunn Earns Coppell Praise

Steve Coppell, the man who is the choice of many to be the next England manager believes that Birmingham’s David Dunn should be knocking on the England door before too long.

Dunn is not quite up to full fitness jus yet but he came on as one of here substitutes just before the hour mark in yesterdays game at the Mad Stad and turned things around for the Blues who looked up until then to be heading out of the competition.

Dunn has been out of action for the best part of a year with a serious back injury and his goal made sure that the two teams must meet again at St Andrews before a winner will be known.

Coppell said: 'He is a quality player. He should be on the England fringes, shouldn't he? I think everyone would say that.

'He has had a really unlucky time with injuries and is being nursed back so he doesn't have any more setbacks. I wish he had nursed him a little bit longer though.'
