Grant Leadbitter, Danny Higginbotham, Kieran Richardson, Ross Wallace,
Michael Chopra is suspended and Dickson Etuhu is at the Africa Cup Of Nations with Nigeria.
Player to watch: Dwight Yorke
Dwight will provide the class and quality balls that can give us the edge against Birmingham.
Birmingham Team News:
The game seems to have come to early for Birmingham`s new signing David Murphy.
However other new boys James McFadden and Mauro Zarate could feature at some stage.

The Finn is always a threat and in my opinion the only player we would have off Birmingham if he were available
