Steve Bruce is back at St Andrews and he will be hoping his Hull City side can put one over on his old club as they maintain a challenge for a play off spot in the Championship.
Lee Clark will obviously be looking for the win that may set Blues on a bit of a run, but this week the talk has all been about a takeover, or lack of one. Lets hope it hasn't affected the players.
Steve Bruce: 'I'm taking no notice of the league table because their team-sheet tells its own story.
'There's Chris Burke and Wade Elliott out wide, Marlon King and Nikola Zigic up front, Hayden Mullins and Ravel Morrison in midfield, Jonathan Spector, Steven Caldwell and Jack Butland at the back, and make no mistake that's a very good team.
'No matter what's going on behind the scenes, they've got some very decent players. It's one defeat in six for them and there's definite signs that they're getting there under Lee Clark.
'We'll have to be at our best to get something and put in a performance that we're capable of.'
Birmingham could be without defender Curtis Davies as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury.
Full back Stephen Carr (knee) is definitely out while midfielder Keith Fahey is unavailable after being granted compassionate leave.
Eight league goals so far this season and has scored in the last couple of games, he would like to keep that run going.
Midfielder David Meyler hopes to make his full debut for Steve Bruce's Hull after joining on loan from Sunderland.
Defender Liam Rosenior is expected to start, but long-term absentee Matty Fryatt (Achilles) is still out.
We all know about Aluko at Birmingham, and he has only improved since going to Hull, scored six goals so far this season and would no doubt love another on Saturday.
• Birmingham have only lost two of their last 13 league matches against Hull City.
• The last two corresponding fixtures on this ground have been goalless draws.
• Hull's solitary league maximum at St Andrews in 26 visits since 1911 was a 4-2 win in April 1970 at this second league level. In all, the Tigers have only registered three away league victories against Blues.
Hull usually score one, so I'll go for 0-1.
