On Sky

Birmingham v Barnsley

Barnsley travel to Birmingham still looking for their first away points of the season.

The reds will be in high spirits following their performance at Blackburn on Tuesday night. The result may not have been what they hoped for but it was a much improved performance on the road.

The match is televised on Sky which usually brings the worst out of Barnsley.

Vital Quotes:

Birmingham Team News:

Birmingham have right backs Paul Caddis and Stephen Carr out injured so centre back Curtis Davies may have to slot in there.

Darren Ambrose faces a late fitness test on a thigh injury and the recent form of Jonathan Spector could mean that he drops to the bench.

Player to watch: Ambrose

Barnsley Team News:

John Stones will miss the match after suffering an ankle injury against Blackburn.

Craig Davies is also a doubt after Keith Hill revealed the striker had been playing through the pain of a groin injury.

Summer signing Toni Silva could be fit enough for the bench.
