Birmingham City are enjoying life under Gary Rowett and sit in fifth place ahead of this weekend’s clash with Queen’s Park Rangers.
Rowett has rejuvenated the Birmingham side who were struggling so badly under Lee Clark, and he is squeezing every last ounce out of his players and resources.
Birmingham have four wins and only one loss from their opening eight games.
They are very defensively solid and look to hit teams on the counter attack.
This weekend they visit Loftus Road to play QPR in what promises to be a close encounter.
After coming quickly out of the blocks, QPR have slowed in recent games and following a 6-0 thumping by Newcastle and three losses in a row, their confidence appears to have been shattered completely.
The Blues will be looking to take advantage of QPR’s poor form and pick up another three points this weekend.
Here is the XI Gary Rowett should deploy to give them the best chance of beating QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday…..
