Sports Mole previews the match between Birmingham City and Championship leaders Leicester City.

Birmingham City will be hoping that they can bring an end to a run that has seen them fail to win a Championship game at St Andrew's in nearly four months.

The Blues haven't recorded three points at home since October 1 and a ninth failed attempt could see Lee Clark's men fall closer to the relegation zone.

Leicester City make the short trip to the West Midlands on the back of seven successive victories in the league.

The Foxes have opened up an eight-point gap at the top of the table as they look to establish an unassailable lead in the standings.

Manager Nigel Pearson will be without defender Liam Moore, who has been ruled out for three weeks with a broken rib.
