Blues take on Middlesbrough next in the nPower Championship and if the lads are thinking of grabbing a play off place this season then they really need to get back on form and get something from this one.
But Boro have eyes on a top six place themselves and they will be looking for the win that would consolodate their place in the play off places.
It's all set for a great game.
Chris Hughton - (official site)
'There's no doubt when you're playing a team that's in and around you it has more meaning because it's points they don't get.
'From that aspect it is a big game and I hope it's a big game for us because we've had a difficult time of the late.
'The performance at Leicester wasn't one of our better performances.
'Our performance in perhaps the two home games - Derby and Forest - would have at some stages this season got us wins.
'But I think when things are going against you a little bit and you are not getting the rub of the green as such, that tends to happen'.
Birmingham will give a late check to full-back David Murphy, he has just returned to training after a hip problem.
Defenders Stephen Carr and Jonathan Spector are sidelined, midfielder Jordon Mutch is banned but striker Nathan Redmond should make a return.
Looks most likely to score of late.
Middlesbrough will give a check to Kevin Thomson, he was rendered unconscious in the home defeat by Leeds.
Barry Robson serves a suspension and Faris Haroun is a doubt.
Knows where the goal is alright, will pose Blues a problem or two.
Birmingham have won 35 and lost 30 of 93 league matches against Middlesbrough.
The 3-1 home win in the reverse fixture in August was Middlesbrough's fourth victory in five league meetings with the Brummies, and gives them the chance of a second double in six years.
The West Midlands club have been beaten in one of their last 11 league games with 'Boro at St Andrews.
