Birmingham Boxing Day Visitors To Oakwell

Barnsley Look to Move out of the Bottom Three.

Vital Quotes:

Oldtimetyke 'It would be nice to start 2012 where we would like to the come May, outside the bottom 3'

Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley Look to shuffle the back four after Marin Cranie picked up an ankle injury away at millwall.
Chris Dagnall is set to make his first home start since October with Craig Davies still on the treatment table.

Player to watch: Marcus Tudgay

Tudgay could have the goals that help the reds avoid the drops. Hope fully at the expense of rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Birmingham City Team News:

Birmingham boss Lee Clark will again be without many of the first teamers who missed the 2-2 draw with Burnley because of injuries and a stomach bug.

Paul Robinson is likely to be the only senior player ready to return.

Player to watch: Jack Butland

If the Reds start the way which they finished against Wednesday then Butland will have to be at his best.

Match Facts & Stats

The Tykes, who are looking for their first Boxing Day points in three years, have only scored a divisional low eight home goals.
Steve Foster could make his 450th career league appearance, and Stephen Dawson, his 300th.
Birmingham are undefeated in their last five Boxing Day games (W3 D2) and they have kept clean sheets in three of them. This is the first time in three years the Blues have been away on Boxing Day.

Match Prediction:

I am feeling a 2-1 home victory day. What are all you thinking??
