Birmingham V Brighton at St Andrews Stadium : Match Preview
Birmingham V Brighton - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
As you were for Blues
Birmingham boss Lee Clark is expected to name an unchanged line-up for the visit of winless Brighton.
Clark is not troubled by any new injury or suspension concerns as Blues aim to follow up last weekend's 1-0 victory at Yeovil with another three points, with defender Mitch Hancox (groin) back in contention for a place in the matchday 18.
Clark made one change at Huish Park as Hayden Mullins replaced Kyle Bartley in defence and the former is set to get the nod once more, with the visiting Seagulls having lost all three of their opening matches this term.
Midfielders Darren Ambrose (groin) and Jonathan Spector (fractured cheekbone) are both back in full training but this weekend comes too soon.Nikola Zigic (back) remains out for another month along with long-term absentees Will Packwood and David Murphy.
Brighton will be without Bruno and Liam Bridcutt.
Spanish right-back Bruno remains sidelined by the hamstring injury he suffered on the opening day and midfielder Bridcutt has a hernia problem.
But Andrea Orlandi could return in midfield after missing last week's defeat by Derby with a knee knock.
The Seagulls, who have lost their first three matches, hope to have striker Craig Mackail-Smith back from a long-term Achilles injury by next month.
