irmingham boss Alex McLeish has confirmed that summer signings Nikola Zigic and Matt Derbyshire are in line to face MK Dons.

Alexander Hleb is likely to be given a run-out in the Carling Cup third-round match on Tuesday to improve his match fitness following his loan move from Barcelona. The former Arsenal player made a promising debut against West Brom at the weekend before fading in the second half.

The likes of Maik Taylor, David Murphy, Keith Fahey, Michel, Jean Beausejour and Enric Valles will also be in contention to start.

Birmingham (from): Foster, Taylor, Carr, Johnson, Dann, Ridgewell, Larsson, Gardner, Ferguson, Hleb, Bowyer, Jerome, Murphy, Derbyshire, Michel, Fahey, Zigic, Beausejour, Valles.
