Tuesday night football once again and City make the trip to Yorkshire to take on Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
Both City and Wednesday drew their first league game of the season and both will be looking for the boost of a win in the Yorkshire moonlight
But it will not be easy for Blues, this Wednesday side don't like losing on their own patch and in last season's League One campaign, they won 17 and lost just two of their home games.
And manager Dave Jones has installed a lot of belief in the Wednesday players, he has put together a terrific run of games unbeaten.
"My team kept going until the final whistle and you`ve got to give them great credit for that.
"Sheffield Wednesday have done similar to us and will be hoping the momentum stays after coming back from 2-0 down and rescuing a point.
"It`s their first home game back in the Championship so I imagine the place will be rocking. Hillsborough`s a fantastic old venue.'
Sheffield Wednesday could hand a debut to new signing Rodri.
The former Spain Under-21 international forward has joined the Owls on a season-long deal from Barcelona B and is available to play.
Chris O'Grady should keep his place up front after scoring three from two games.
Anthony Gardner is expected back after injury.
He'll show his class.
Nikola Zigic could start for Birmingham after he came off the bench to score a last-minute equaliser against Charlton on Saturday.
Stephen Carr will also hope to be included in the squad on his return from a thigh injury.
Think he might just be in the mood to grab another now that he has forced himself into the plans of Lee Clark/
Birmingham are defending a seven-match unbeaten run in league and cup against Sheffield Wednesday, culminating in a 3-0 home win in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February 2011.
Their last league clash was in the Championship in January 2009, when a 1-1 draw gave Wednesday their only point from the last 18 available against Blues.
The Owls last registered a home victory over Birmingham in October 2000, when a goal from Steve Harkness decided the second level league match.
Got to go for a 1-1 draw, and it would be a fine result if we could get it.
Sat 25th Aug - Watford v Blues
Sat 1st Sept - Blues v Peterbro'
