Where are they now? The last Birmingham City team to beat Leicester City - including Malaysia, Marbella and Nottingham Forest

Birmingham City's last win against Leicester City came more than a decade ago. Here's what the Blues side from that day are up to now.

Birmingham City and Leicester City clash at St Andrew's tonight in the EFL Championship. Blues' are on a high after beating Cardiff City last Wednesday courtesy of a Juninho Bacuna goal.

Wayne Rooney oversaw his first away win of his tenure, and there is a hope now that his side can finish the year strongly having endured a slow start to life in the Midlands. A win tonight would do them the world of good and they'd move up to 15th, and go level on points with Bristol City ahead of the final round of fixtures before the Christmas break. Leicester will be tricky opponents however and they've won four of their last five games, and currently lead the division on 52 points.

It's been 12-years and two months since Birmingham last recorded a win against the Foxes. The two teams have been separated however with Birmingham languishing in the Championship since their relegation in 2011, whilst Leicester have won the Premier League and the FA Cup, whilst also competing in the UEFA Champions League. Leicester find themselves back in English football's second tier however.

October 16, 2011 is the last time Birmingham won against Leicester. Marlon King scored a penalty in the 50th minute after Jean Beausejour was fouled, and then six minutes from time King supplied Chris Wood for a left-footed shot which secured the victory. Chris Hughton was Birmingham's manager at the time whilst Sven-Goran Eriksson was in charge of Leicester, and so much has changed since that fixture.

Here is what Birmingham's starting XI and substitutes are up to today. The side includes a current Nottingham Forest forward, as well as someone who's now playing in Malaysia, as well as a bar owner in Marbella who has hosted Erling Haaland and Katie Price.
