    C:WindowsTempphp5A91.tmpBirmingham could have record signing Jota available to face Cardiff on Friday night.


    The £6.5million striker has been missing with a hamstring injury but is nearing a return while Che Adams and Jason Lowe are looking to overcome their own hamstring issues to feature. 


    Emilio Nsue was due to return from international duty with Equatorial Guinea until Thursday which would give him a very short turnaround to face the Sky Bet Championship leaders. Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson is also out having dislocated his shoulder against Reading seven weeks ago.

    Cardiff midfielder Aron Gunnarsson will be assessed after playing in the two games which secured Iceland's World Cup qualification. Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock was unhappy before the international break that Gunnarsson reported for Iceland duty after missing Cardiff's previous two games with hip and thigh problems.


    But Gunnarsson started Iceland's wins over Turkey and Kosovo and Warnock will make a late decision on whether he plays at St Andrew's. Bruno Manga and Neil Etheridge will also be monitored after returning late from respective international duty with Gabon and the Philippines, while on-loan midfielder Craig Bryson is available again after missing the draw with Derby two weeks ago as he was unable to play against his parent club.

    Re: BIRMINGHAM CITY v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    Love that starting 11. Glad he's resting Gunnar who must be spent. Shame no Paterson yet. He must be close. Connelly a useful sub as his job description is just "a defender".

    We’re getting bullied here, I doubt if they can keep up the pressing for 90 minutes though

    Agreed. Either he goes off or Manga goes off and Sol goes back one.

    Looks like.

    Brum look like they want it more.

    Midfield is a mess.

    Zohore looks isolated.

    NML Has been anonymous.

    Hoillett needs to learn to pass the ball - especially when he can't hit a cows arse with a banjo.

    Oh and a keeper that can kick the ball would help.

    But it's only 1-0, so the one saving grace is that we can still turn it around.

    Re: BIRMINGHAM CITY v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    I think Manga needs to make way for Gunnars second half, get Sol back in the middle.

    A midfielder has to come on now. Bamba has to come out of there.
    It's going to be another Preston if things don't improve.

    Re: BIRMINGHAM CITY v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    ok Neil youíve made your point with Gunner and Iceland. Get him on 2nd half.

    Re: BIRMINGHAM CITY v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    Manga off. Bamba back into defence- Damour or Gunnar into midfield
