Birmingham City have found themselves embroiled in a relegation battle this season.

Lee Bowyer’s side are currently 18th in the Championship table. The gap between themselves and 22nd place Peterborough is now nine points, with Peterborough having two games in hand.

The Blues are winless in six league games as they prepare to face this weekend’s opponents Barnsley.

Barnsley are bottom of the table and offer an opportunity for Bowyer’s men to turn their poor form around.

Here, we take a look at their potential line up to face The Tykes this weekend…

Birmingham will be without a number of players this weekend due to injury concerns. Jordan Graham will return to the squad, but it is unlikely he will be thrown straight back into the starting side after missing the team’s last three games.

Troy Deeney and Ivan Sanchez are unfit to even make the bench, with new loan signing Taylor Roberts also unexpected to feature.

Quiz: Have each of these 25 ex-Birmingham City players ever played in the Premier League?

1 of 25

Jude Bellingham?

Yes No

However, both Marc Roberts and Lukasz Jurtkiewicz should both be available despite going after as a precaution against Fulham.

Scott Hogan to replace Onel Hernandez is the only change Bowyer is likely to make to the side that got hammered 6-2 midweek. Due to the absences, there is simply very little room for change despite the recent poor form.
