No new injury problems for Birmingham

Birmingham have no new problems as they prepare for the visit of Leeds.

Blues boss Gary Rowett said at his pre-match press conference on Monday that "more or less everyone is fit" and that mental fatigue, rather than physical injuries, could pose more of a problem for some of his players.

Neal Eardley, who is out of contract in the summer, is sidelined for the rest of the season with a knee injury and looks to be Rowett's only absentee.

Diego Fabbrini, James Vaughan, Viv Solomon-Otabor, Jacques Maghoma, Jon Toral and Jonathan Spector all began on the bench on Saturday and will come into Rowett's thinking should he wish to make any changes to his starting XI.

Leeds midfielder Liam Bridcutt will play no part after missing the weekend defeat at Burnley due to a thigh strain.

Toumani Diagouraga returned to the starting line-up in midfield on Saturday and is expected to continue in Bridcutt's absence.

Head coach Steve Evans has reported no new injury problems but striker Souleymane Doukara will sit out the fourth game of his eight-match ban for biting.

Sol Bamba was back in central defence in place of Giuseppe Bellusci at the weekend and Evans must decide who will partner Liam Cooper.
