Nottingham - Birmingham -pelissä kotijoukkueen kertoimet laskussa. Jotain syytä tälle?
Mahtaako tuo olla osasyy..Birmingham boss Alex McLeish will be forced to change his line-up for the first time in eight matches
for the FA Cup clash with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground onn Saturday.
Full-back Stephen Carr is suspended after collecting his fifth yellow card of the campaign during the win at Stoke on Monday and Stuart Parnaby is set to replace the former Newcastle player after recovering from injury.
McLeish insists he will treat the competition seriously but the manager has several players who he may throw in to the action including Gary McSheffrey, Kevin Phillips, Keith Fahey, Gregory Vignal, Lee Carsley and Franck Queudrue.
Number two keeper Maik Taylor, who played instead of Joe Hart in this season's Carling Cup ties, is ruled out with a back problem which has required an injection.
Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has no new injury concerns.
Wes Morgan came through their 2-0 win over Coventry on Monday after a bout of tonsilitis kept him out of the goalless draw with Watford, meaning Davies has close to a full squad to chose from.
Forest's only major absentees are Guy Moussi and Julian Bennett.
Moussi has missed the last seven matches with an ankle problem and the French midfielder continues to struggle while defender Bennett is still out with a knee injury.
Forest, who are unbeaten in 17 league games, will be full of confidence and hoping to take that form into the cup.
Dexter Blackstock and Robert Earnshaw will be looking to retain their places up front after making goalscoring returns against Coventry.
Birmingham Squad: Hart, Doyle, Parnaby, Roger Johnson, Dann, Queudrue, Ridgewell, Vignal, Larsson, Ferguson, Bowyer, McFadden, McSheffrey, Carsley, Fahey, Jerome, Benitez, Phillips, Damien Johnson. (sportingpreview.com)
