Opinion: Predicted line up Vs. Queens Park Rangers

Opinion: Predicted line up Vs. Queens Park Rangers

Birmingham City are back at St.Andrew's this weekend to take on Queens Park Rangers in what really is a must win game for Steve Cotterill.

The Blues boss may act all calm and collected on the surface of everything but deep down he knows that he is under pressure and the only way to ease that pressure is by winning this weekend against Rangers.

Cotterill has confirmed that Marc Roberts and Che Adams are 100% out of the game with injuries but Harlee Dean and Maxime Colin will be back in contention for the game.

It is believed that Dean will go straight back into the side that narrowly lost 1-0 against Fulham at Craven Cottage last weekend but it remains unseen as to whether Colin will go straight back into the starting line up.

Elsewhere it looks as though Jason Lowe and Craig Gardner are still out injured, along with Carl Jenkinson and Isaac Vassell.

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

GK: Stockdale
RWB: Nsue
CB: Dean
CB: Morrison
CB: Grounds
LWB: Bramall
CDM: Gleeson
CM: Davis
CM: Kieftenbeld
CF: Boga
ST: Gallagher

Substitutes: Kuszczak, Dacres-Cogley, Colin, Cotterill, Maghoma, Jota, Jutkiewicz.

Blues fans, what do you make of the team that has been predicted? Let us know in the comment section down below!

All you can do is pick them , striker in the team , is courting failure , and as the strikers are not scoring ,we can only pick them and hope they hit form ....but to not pick them is idiotic ...

Really scrutinising SC against QPR. They concede many free kicks around the box.Ideal game for David Cotterill and Jota.Will the penny drop with our hapless manager? Afraid not.
