Birmingham City

Updated: All the latest Birmingham City team news ahead of Brentford



Birmingham City will host Brentford on Saturday afternoon looking to continue their impressive form of late.

Pep Clotet’s side have been in excellent form, winning their last three league games and going nine games unbeaten in all competitions.

The midweek win over Barnsley saw lively striker Scott Hogan score his third goal in three games and Clotet will be hoping for much of the same against Thomas Frank’s Brentford side.

Brentford arrive at St Andrews having been held to a draw by Leeds United in midweek and the visitors will be looking for a victory to further cement their promotion challenge.

Blues boss Clotet is not expected to make many changes to his starting eleven, but the Spaniard does have four players ruled out through injury.

Former Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran is expected to miss the rest of the season, whilst Jacques Maghoma has a problem.

Attacking midfielder Kerim Mrabti is also ruled out, although Maikel Kieftenbeld is on the verge of returning to first team action.

Is Peter Lovenkrands still playing?

The good news for Blues fans is that both Scott Hogan and Lukas Jutkiewicz have no problems and will continue to play in a front two.

A win for Birmingham on Saturday could see Clotet’s side climb as high as 11th if results around them go their way.
