Bojinov and Johnson return to action

Valeri Bojinov has marked his return to action with a goal as City's reserves held Newcastle at St James Park.

The Bulgarian striker has been out of action since sustaining a cruciate ligament injury just six minutes into his first start for the Blues against Manchester United last August. However after coming on as a second-half substitute gave the Blues a deserved equaliser in the first Barclays Premier Reserve League fixture since
December.

The summer signing from Fiorentina was on the bench to start with as City looked to give some first team squad members some valuable match practice with a two week gap in the Premier League fixture list looming. Michael Johnson started his first game since the Carling Cup tie against Spurs in December, the teenager having been hampered by a niggling abdominal injury.

Bearing in mind we are now on a fortnights break until the Everton game, hopefully both players will see some further action between now and then.

Johnson will clearly be closer to a return, and will be a big boost to us, but personally, I am looking forward to seeing Bojinov feature in the current side and given the length of time they have both been absent for, they will certainly come back fresh as we head towards the final, crucial stage of the season.
