2 tweaks Karanka could make to the Birmingham City XI for the Norwich clash tomorrow



Birmingham City will be desperate to get back to winning ways tomorrow night, as they prepare to take on Norwich City at Carrow Road.

It has been a slow start to the season for Aitor Karanka’s side, who have been unable to pick up a win since their opening-day victory over Brentford at St. Andrew’s.

They have only been defeated once, losing 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, but they need to start turning draws into wins having drew three games thus far.

The capacity at St Andrew's is more than 30,000?

On Tuesday night, they take on a Norwich side who sit 11th in the Championship table having picked up seven points from their first five games of the season.

Birmingham, meanwhile, sit 16th in the league standings, and with a tough away trip to QPR also fast approaching, squad rotation will be key this week.

Here, we take a look at two tweaks Karanka could make to his side ahead of the trip to Carrow Road tomorrow evening…

Leko in for Bela

Leko made his debut for Birmingham at the weekend, coming on for Jeremie Bela just after the hour mark.

The winger made a posiitve impression for Blues, and his pace proved to be really threatening for Wednesday. On another day, they could have scored late on.

Leko will be keen to make his first start for Blues on Tuesday night, and his pace could prove to be really dangerous for Karanka’s side against the Canaries.

McGree in for Crowley

McGree also made his debut for Blues at the weekend, coming on for Daniel Crowley just before the hour mark.

The midfielder also looked quite promising upon his introduction to the game. He always looked to get on the ball and create chances for his teammates.

He will be keen to start on Tuesday night and show Karanka what he’s all about, and his creativity could freshen up the side.
