Sports Mole previews Hull's trip to Birmingham in the Championship on Saturday.

Birmingham City will look to build on their recently-improved form as they host promotion hopefuls Hull City on Saturday.

Birmingham will be without on-loan striker Leroy Lita, who has returned to parent club Swansea early after picking up a thigh injury.

With no other fresh injuries, the St Andrews side should be relatively unchanged from the team that held Blackburn to a draw last Saturday.

Hull could be missing Paul McShane after the defender pulled out of Ireland's squad for their friendly against Greece with a calf injury.

Alex Bruce is also doubtful, having missed last weekend's game against Cardiff with a knee injury.

A win for the Tigers would see them close the gap to third-placed Cardiff.
