Birmingham City striker Leroy Lita is preferred to Marlon King for the visit of Huddersfield Town to St Andrews on Saturday afternoon.

Birmingham City defender Will Packwood has failed to prove his fitness ahead of the clash with Huddersfield Town this afternoon.

The American was substituted against Cardiff City in midweek and hasn't recovered from the calf problem in time for the visit of the Terriers.

Despite suggestions that Marlon King could be recalled by Lee Clark, it is Leroy Lita who has been preferred in attack.

Clark's former club received a boost with the confirmation that Adam Hammill was fit enough to be named as a substitute, with Jermaine Beckford leading the line for the visitors.

Birmingham: Butland, Hurst, Caldwell, Davies, Robinson, Burke, Fahey, Spector, Elliott, Redmond, Lita

Huddersfield: Smithies, Hunt, Clarke, Gerrard, Woods Southern, Norwood, Clayton, Vaughan, Beckford, Ward
