Latest team news

Eustace made two changes to his team against Rotherham from those who played in the Blues 1-0 loss to Wigan Athletic the previous week.

Troy Deeney replaced Lukas Jutkiewicz, who was suspended, while Marc Roberts came in for Przemyslaw Placheta.

Krystian Bielik is expected to miss the game after recently returning from a long-term injury. Eustace believes it would be ‘unfair’ to select the Polish midfielder.

“I think it’s not fair on Krystian if I’m being honest,” the Blues boss said. “He’s been out for six weeks, he’s done well this week, he hasn’t had many games.”
