Birmingham face a trip to the New York Stadium to play Rotherham United on Saturday (August 27) - here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match

Birmingham come into this game hoping to right the wrongs of Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Wigan Athletic.

Blues are four without a win in all competitions since the 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town on August 5th, and sit 18th in the league following their most recent defeat to the Latics.

The Millers lost in mid-week at home to League One Morecambe in the Carabao cup - although manager Paul Warne made wholesale changes to the team.

The hosts are yet to lose in the Championship, and sit 13th in the league.

Birmingham will definitely be without striker Lukas Jutkiewicz, who has picked up a retrospective two-match ban from the FA for ‘deliberately deceiving a match official’ during the defeat to Wigan.

Marc Roberts and Jordan Graham could also miss the game, with manager John Eustace labelling their availability for the match ‘touch and go’

Gary Gardner could return to action however. with Eustace saying the midfielder is ‘in contention’, although he did concede Saturday’s game ‘might be a little early for him’

Krystian Bielik continues to recover from his injury absence, and has returned to training this week, but won’t be ready for this game.

Rotherham, on the other hand, could be without Dan Barlaser, who picked up an injury in the cup tie with Morecambe, but are otherwise fully fit.

How can I watch?

Unfortunately as this game is a 3pm kick off on Saturday there will be no live stream or TV coverage available.
