Lee Bowyer’s side have picked up a respectable four points from three tough opening fixtures, but they were beaten 2-0 at St. Andrew’s by Bournemouth last time out with the visitors getting two late goals.
Therefore, the boss has decided to make changes for the clash at Kenilworth Road, with Ivan Sunjic and Scott Hogan coming into the XI, as Gary Gardner and Jonathan Leko drop to the bench.
Whilst most fans understand the decision to freshen up the midfield and attack after the midweek game, many are surprised that Ivan Sanchez has been overlooked considering the quality that he has, and they are mystified as to why he isn’t getting many opportunities.
Can you name the Birmingham City player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Here we look at some of the reaction to the team news from a section of the support on Twitter…
Unpopular opinion but Leko should be in over hogan as he’s the only striker to manage a shot on target this season
