Birmingham will be without leading scorer Craig Gardner and defender Liam Ridgewell through suspension for Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Fulham at St Andrew’s.
Nine-goal Gardner will complete a two-game ban while Ridgewell will serve a one-match suspension for his red card in last weekend’s 2-1 reverse at at Newcastle.
Stuart Parnaby and David Murphy will be in contention to replace Ridgewell at left-back. Striker Nikola Zigic is still battling to overcome groin and hip problems and unlikely to be fit.
Birmingham (from): Foster, Carr, Johnson, Jiranek, Parnaby, Murphy, Larsson, Ferguson, Bowyer, Jerome, Phillips, Doyle, Hleb, Fahey, Derbyshire, Mutch, Davies, Bentley, Beausejour, Zigic.
