Teams are changing their styles - Baker

Nathan Baker says City are ready to do battle with Birmingham City tonight, who he expects will play differently compared to the two sides' clash back in August.

City host the Blues under the lights of Ashton Gate tonight (7.45pm kick-off), seeking a win to keep pace with the play-off pack.

Birmingham City have picked up form since Garry Monk's arrival but central defender Baker is confident the Robins can get back to form and dent the travelling side's run.

"Yes it’s still good,” Baker told BCTV, when asked about the squad’s mood heading into the Tuesday night clash.

"We’re eighth in the league, four points from the play-offs and with five games remaining we still have opportunities to get back into the play-offs.

"Most teams are changing the way they play, whether they are fighting for survival or the play-offs for promotion. At this point in the season teams do change a lot but we’re focussing on getting our form back and we hope to do that against Birmingham.

"They are one of those sides. They are fighting for survival and they have adopted to a way that is winning them games. It will be a battle and hopefully we can get the three points this time."

The Blues, who are unbeaten against City since November 2nd 1993, were victorious back in August with a 2-1 scoreline at St Andrew's.

Baker continued: "Looking back at the game earlier in the season, it was one we could have won quite easily from the chances we had but it’s all changed now. It will be a fight and we have to be up for it.

"We’re still learning, we’re a young team but we are picking up more experience with each game. We owe that to the fans who have been brilliant all season. To get the win here on Tuesday after a recent run of poor form will be great."
