Birmingham City will be looking to make it four matches unbeaten in the Championship when they return to action on Sunday.
The Blues head into their match against Stoke City having being held to a 1-1 draw with Rotherham United, which was a frustrating result to take against the Millers.
Birmingham are now sat ninth in the Championship table, and will be eager to move back into the play-off positions with a win over Michael O’Neill’s Stoke side.

As expected. Would have been nice to see Hogan start over Juke, however.

Pleased to see the return of the favoured 4-2-3-1. Take a point for sure from this game #bcfc

Crowley must be doing something wrong in training

Don’t know why Crowley is so out fo favour. Nice to see him go back to 4231. Would’ve liked Hogan over Juke but in Karanka we trust x https://t.co/KDBlIRKFJQ

Class lineup, hopefully see Crowley and Hogan on at some point in their positions https://t.co/rxAZ1PlTlg
