BIRMINGHAM boss Laurence Rogers admits the search is on for another temporary signing following further injuries for Danyon Hume.

The 21-year-old made his comeback from a short lay-off with an arm injury at Ipswich last Thursday, but dislocated his shoulder in a crash with team-mate Jonas Jeppesen.

He’s now facing at least six weeks on the sidelines with the Edwards Plumbing Brummies left to solve another team dilemma.

Said Rogers: “The amount of bad luck we’ve had with some of the boys this year already is unbelievable.

“You have to feel for Danyon himself though because he’s had his own fair share of bad luck in the past 15 months or so and this is another blow for him.

“He had to be knocked out so that they could pop his shoulder back in on Thursday and a dislocated shoulder is a strange old injury to have.

“Each rider reacts differently but he's had a few tests and check-ups already and it looks like he's going to be out for at least six weeks.

“So with Danyon being such a key rider to us, we need to try and act as quickly as we can because we’ve got a big, important run of fixtures coming up now.

“As we’ve found out already when looking for replacements for Mitch (Davey) and JPB (Jack Parkinson-Blackburn) there’s very little out there.

“Not only in terms of quality riders who can fit into the team on the right average, but also in terms of class of rider to replace someone of Danyon’s talent and capabilities.

“But David (Mason – co-promoter) and I will leave no stone unturned and we will do everything we can to try and find a suitable enough replacement.”

The Brummies celebrate their 90th Anniversary this Wednesday at Perry Barr with pre-season title favourites Mildenhall the visitors in the Travel Plus National League (7.30).
