Birmingham City vs Leicester City team news - as eight players out and five doubts

The early team and injury news ahead of Birmingham City vs Leicester City in the Championship – including a Jamie Vardy update.

Birmingham City and Leicester City have a similar number of players at risk of missing Monday night's Championship clash at St Andrew's Stadium, though the Foxes are likelier to see some key men return.

Jamie Vardy is one of those on the Leicester injury list, meaning there will be no reunion with Wayne Rooney following the 'Wagatha Christie' trial between the two ex-England teammates' wives.

The experienced striker isn't the only one set to miss out, with six or seven players apiece either ruled out or doubts for this one. Here are all the latest team news updates ahead of Monday.
