Trio of changes for Blues clash

Niki Mäenpää returns to guard the City goal for the visit of Birmingham City tonight (February 26th, 7.45pm KO).

He is one of three changes for Lee Johnson’s side, with Eros Pisano and Kasey Palmer returning to the starting XI.

Club captain Bailey Wright moves to the bench, meaning Marlon Pack takes the skipper’s armband, while Palmer steps in ahead of Jamie Paterson who also makes the bench.

Frank Fielding misses out from the squad after being diagnosed with a chip fracture of his thumb.

City: Mäenpää, Pisano, Webster, Kalas, Dasilva, Pack, Brownhill, Weimann, Palmer, O’Dowda, Diédhiou. Subs: O'Leary, Wright, Kelly, Paterson, Taylor, Eliasson, Hunt.

Birmingham City: Camp, Pederson, Colin, Kieftenbeld, Mahoney, Adams, Jutkiewicz, Dean, Mrbati, G Gardner, Morrison. Subs: Trueman, C Gardner, Vassell, Maghoma, Jota, Davis, Harding.
