Match Preview

Changes in the offing for Clark Lee Clark is looking to make changes to his Birmingham side for the visit of Blackpool following Saturday's woeful 5-2 defeat away at Hull. Blues went 1-0 down inside the first minute at the KC Stadium and that set the tone for an afternoon to forget as the Tigers found themselves five goals to the good before a touch of late resistance. The likes of Morgaro Gomis, Nathan Redmond, Wes Thomas, Shane Ferguson, Paul Robinson and Hayden Mullins now come into contention, as does Ravel Morrison, who is involved for the club's Under-21 side on Monday afternoon after a lengthy absence from first-team affairs. Fellow midfielders Keith Fahey and Darren Ambrose will also be enjoying long-awaited outings for the development side, but it may be just too soon to consider them for senior involvement as they continue to step up their fitness after several months out. One player who will not be involved is 14-goal leading scorer Marlon King after he was ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ongoing knee problem. Paul Ince has no new injury worries as his shot-shy Blackpool side prepare to travel. Matt Derbyshire replaced Gary Taylor-Fletcher in attack for Saturday's home game against strugglers Bristol City, but the Seasiders proceeded to draw a blank for a fourth consecutive match, and on-loan Aston Villa forward Nathan Delfouneso could push for a start. "It's a concern that in four games we haven't scored a goal, but it would be more if we were conceding goals," Ince told BBC Radio Lancashire. On-loan MK Dons defender Gary MacKenzie made his debut in Blackpool's back four and is set to continue after earning plaudits from Ince. "He looked comfortable and he gave us that nastiness," he said. "You have to be like that sometimes. It's not all about playing free-flowing football. You have to have that edge and he gave us that." Midfielder Chris Basham remains on the sidelines due to a broken cheekbone, alongside defenders Bob Harris (toe) and Ian Evatt (knee).
