Defensive pair back for Birmingham
Queudrue, who has been converted from left-back into a central defender this season, and right-back Parnaby have been included in the squad after recovering from hamstring problems. Manager Alex McLeish's injury problems are easing with another back-four player in Gregory Vignal set to resume training next week - also after a hamstring setback. But on-loan Sunderland midfielder Teemu Tainio is ineligible to face former Blues boss Steve Bruce's side. Birmingham (from): Hart, Carr, Parnaby, Ridgewell, Roger Johnson, Dann, Queudrue, Larsson, Ferguson, Carsley, Bowyer, McFadden, Jerome, O'Connor, McSheffrey, Phillips, Damien Johnson, Bent, O'Shea, Maik Taylor.
