Birmingham City team news vs Peterborough United: Gardner dropped for Blues

Blues are looking to make it back-to-back home wins this evening

Birmingham City manager Lee Bowyer makes just one change from the side that beat Barnsley 2-1 on Saturday.

Ivan Sunjic is the man that gets the starting nod in place of Gary Gardner who didn’t impress despite the win at the weekend.

Other than Croatian coming back into the eleven then, it’s as you were with the formation looking likely to stay the same.

Neil Etheridge keeps his place as the Blues number one with Maxime Colin, Marc Roberts, Teden Mengi & Kristian Pedersen making up the back four.

Sunjic will play a more holding role alongside Ryan Woods with Onel Hernandez and Jordan James being given more freedom to attack and support the front two.

That front two come in the shape of Scott Hogan and Lukas Jutkiewicz.

Birmingham City (4-2-2-2): Etheridge; Colin, Roberts, Mengi, Pedersen; Woods, Sunjic; Hernandez, James; Jutkiewicz (C), Hogan

Subs: Trueman (GK), Friend, Campbell, Gardner, Bellingham, Bela, Graham
