Opinion: Predicted line up Vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Opinion: Predicted line up Vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

AND IT'S LIVE! As they would say on Sky Sports. Birmingham City are back at St.Andrew's on Monday evening to take on table toppers and local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in what is a vitally important game for both clubs involved.

A win for Wolves would move them four points clear of second placed Cardiff City after they came from behind on Friday night to win 3-1.

And a win for Blues would move them further away from the relegation zone.

Blues manager Steve Cotterill has been talking a lot this week about how the teams togetherness has been getting much stronger and the club were quick to pounce on the positive vibes, let's just hope that we as fans can see that togetherness on the pitch on Monday.

In terms of injuries, Blues now just have Isaac Vassell as the only long term absentee as Carl Jenkinson has now returned to full training so there may well be further changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Sheffield United last weekend.

Down below is the side that I think Cotterill will choose along with the seven substitutes...

GK: Stockdale
RB: Nsue
CB: Morrison
CB: Dean
CB: Roberts
LB: Grounds
CM: Kieftenbeld
CM: Davis
RW: Jota
ST: Adams
LW: Boga

Substitutes: Kuszczak, Jenkinson, Cotterill, Ndoye, Maghoma, Gallagher, Jutkiewicz.

Blues fans, what do you make of the team that has been selected? Is it one that you would be happy with? Let us know in the comment section down below!

On paper the team looks decent.In reality we know they can be woeful.Basically we can but only hope they will get a point from the next two games.Pundits have us down for zero points.Adams and Jota really must start to produce a proper return for all their so called talent and potential.Brentford and Bristol City have that look about them that we once had-bottle and desire.All the games I have seen this season have not had that by a long,long way.Loan players haven't looked right and I would urge SC to play the next 2 games without them.An ex-Blues manager recently explained to me that when in a real relegation scrap it is pointless relying on loan players.They may be good but the extra gutsy 10% isn't there.
