Birmingham City will be eager to keep up their impressive run of form as they take on Stoke City this afternoon. The Blues now sit eight points ahead of the Championship relegation zone after picking up three wins in their last five matches.

Any chance of dropping down to League One looks very slim for John Eustace’s side now and they will instead be looking to move closer to mid-table on home soil today. However, Stoke are also enjoying a positive spell themselves. Despite losing to Bristol City last time out, the Potters had gone five games without defeat and had put a total of 12 goals past Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers and Coventry City.

Team news

Birmingham City

Blues could welcome Troy Deeney back to the fold after it was previously reported that the clash with Reading on Friday would come a little too soon for the striker. Deeney, who has netted seven goals in the Championship this season, hasn’t featured since the defeat to Huddersfield Town in February.

Eustace could also bring Dion Sanderson back today, with the defender also spending almost two months on the sidelines. However, he may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Predicted line-up: Ruddy; Colin, Roberts, Long, Trusty; Bielik, Chang; Chong, Hall, Khadra; Jutkiewicz

Stoke City

Predicted line-up: Bonham; Hoever, Wilmot, Jagielka, Sterling; Pearson, Laurent; Brown, Smallbone, Campbell; Powell
