Nikola Zigic has been omitted from Birmingham's matchday squad for Saturday's Championship clash at home to Watford after mananger Lee Clark accused him of turning in "the worst training session...I have ever come across".

Manager Lee Clark has been angered by Zigic's poor work ethic and attitude at the club's Wast Hills training base and has not held back in his criticism of the towering Serbian striker, who still earns a reported £50,000-plus per week following Blues' relegation from the Barclays Premier League.
