Birmingham City and Hull City have announced their starting lineups ahead of the Sky Bet Championship clash at St Andrew’s this evening. Blues, currently in 15th place, can soar into the top half with a victory, as the league standings are incredibly tight as things stand.

John Eustace’s side suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat away to Burnley last time out; expected given the Clarets’ position in the table but the result perhaps a little harsh. Eustace has kept faith in his side despite that result, as he names an unchanged side from the trip to Turf Moor.

There will be a midfield five with wing-backs, as Krystian Bielik stands as the deepest-lying in the centre of the park. Tahith Chong plays as a shadow striker next to Troy Deeney.
