Opinion: Predicted line up Vs. Nottingham Forest

Opinion: Predicted line up Vs. Nottingham Forest

After another boring international break, Birmingham City are back in action this weekend against Nottingham Forest at St.Andrew's in what is a must win game for Steve Cotterill's side.

The visitors are just two points outside of the play-off spots on 24 points meaning that a win on Saturday afternoon would either put them in, or within further touching distance of top six spot.

Blues on the other hand are currently in the relegation zone and are in need of some points to steer them clear of what could be another disaster of a season.

Heading into the game, manager Cotterill has confirmed that Craig Gardner is the only fresh injury concern meaning that there could well be no changes in the game against Forest.

Down below is the side that I think Cotterill may name along with the seven substitutes...

GK: Kuszczak
RB: Nsue
CB: Dean
CB: Morrison
LB: Grounds
CDM: Kieftenbeld
CDM: Lowe
RAM: Jota
CAM: Adams
LAM: Boga
ST: Jutkiewicz

Substitutes: Trueman, Dacres-Cogley, Roberts, Ndoye, Gleeson, Maghoma, Gallagher.

Blues fans, what do you make of the changes to the side? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

For me they are all playing for there places , we have had a lot worse players and been in the play off positions , we don't need hard arse players that won't do it can't do it , I am not sure about a bid for cost as the Greek, his stats are no different to what we have got stat wise , we need a centre back with better ball control ,and a bit more pace , so he doesn't lose the ball in his own area , and we don't get caught on the break , we are going round in circles ...i have seen some improvement but not with goals . think of the goals as being backed by your ladies net tights ...and get it in there ...COME ON...
