Two Missing For Visit Of West Ham
Curtis Davies and Jean Beausejour will play no part for Blues in the Boxng Day clash with West Ham United at St Andrews for the Boxing Day visit of West Ham.
Centre-back Davies picked up his fifth yellow card of the season on Monday night at Crystal Palace, this means he must sit out one game.
Winger Beausejour, meanwhile, continues to struggle with a calf problem and will play no part against the Hammers
Liam Ridgewell (thigh) could come back into the mix as he looks to make his comeback, but its doubtful that he will make the starting line-up.
Hughton is likely to bring fresh faces into his line-up following the defeat at Selhurst Park, with the likes of Chris Wood, Wade Elliott, Nikola Zigic and Morgaro Gomis all ready to go.
