Birmingham City vs Huddersfield Town

Match Preview
Paul Robinson suspended for Birmingham

Birmingham are without captain Paul Robinson after he was banned for three games by the Football Association.

The defender denied a charge of violent conduct after an incident with James Chester in Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa but was found guilty.

Defender Michael Morrison is out as he continues to recover from a hernia operation he had in February.

Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak shrugged off a knock to face Villa meaning Adam Legzdins will again be on the bench.

Huddersfield full-back Tommy Smith is expected to return after a dead leg forced him to miss the midweek win at Wolves.

With a play-off place secured head coach David Wagner may be tempted to make changes to rest a few players like the influential Aaron Mooy.

The likes of on-loan Chelsea forward Izzy Brown, who has been a substitute for the last two matches after a month out with a knee injury, could be given a run out to improve his match fitness ahead of the post-season league matches.

Wagner is also awaiting an update on the fitness of striker Elias Kachunga, who has missed the last two matches with a calf problem.
