Birmingham City

22-y/o starts: Monk should play this Birmingham XI v Millwall tomorrow

Published

Birmingham City will be looking to avenge their defeat to Aston Villa last weekend when they host struggling Millwall at St. Andrew’s on Wednesday evening.

Garry Monk’s charges fell to defeat against their bitter rivals to condemn themselves to a second successive defeat after slipping up against Hull City before last weekend.

They still have a shot at making the play-offs come the end of the season as they currently sit 11th in the table, five points off Derby County in sixth.

After events at St. Andrew’s, Monk will be hoping to have his side’s football hitting the headlines.

And for that to happen, he needs to field this XI against the Lions tomorrow evening.

GK: Lee Camp

Camp would have expected to do better for the winner in the derby this past weekend and will be hoping for an assured performance on Wednesday.

RB: Wes Harding

Came in for the injured Maxime Colin and acquitted himself well, leading him to retaining his place against Millwall.

CB: Harlee Dean

Will again reprise his role at the back for Birmingham against the lowly Lions.

CB: Michael Morrison

The club captain will have been hurt by the loss to Villa at the weekend and will want to put things right tomorrow.

LB: Kristian Pedersen

A reliable left-back Pedersen has been assured in recent weeks and will want to keep his form going.

RM: Jota

Quite in the defeat over Aston Villa, Jota will be hoping to be back to his explosive best tomorrow evening.

CM: Gary Gardner


Unable to play due to the terms of his loan agreement from Aston Villa, Gardner will return to the starting XI on Wednesday.

CM: Maikel Kieftenbeld

In the middle of a war at the weekend, that attitude will be needed for the visit of a Millwall side fighting for their lives.

LM: Jacques Maghoma

Indifferent in the loss to Villa – form will need to improve if he is to have any effect going forward on Wednesday evening.

ST: Che Adams

Came close to scoring in the defeat to Villa and will rue his missed opportunities and will aim to be more clinical tomorrow.

ST: Lukas Jutkiewicz

In the wars at the weekend, he will have had the perfect prelude to the physical task Millwall will undoubtedly be on Wednesday.
