Aaron McLean comes into the starting XI for the first time as Birmingham host Doncaster Rovers in the West Midlands tonight.

Birmingham City manager Lee Clark has named striker Aaron McLean in his starting lineup for the first time ahead of tonight's clash with Doncaster Rovers.

The 30-year-old, who signed on for a one-month loan spell with Blues from Hull City a fortnight ago, has been afforded his first start for the clash with Donny at St Andrew's this evening.

McLean will partner Nikola Zigic, who scored the third in the team's 0-3 victory over Barnsley at the weekend, in attack.

Meanwhile, Doncaster boss Paul Dickov has elected against making any changes to his team following the 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, with Aston Villa full-back Enda Stevens retaining his selection having made his debut in the win over the R's.

Birmingham City: Randolph; Caddis, Robinson, Burn, Hancox; Novak, Adeyemi, Reilly, Lingard; Mclean, Zigic

Doncaster Rovers: Turnbull; Quinn, Khumalo, McCullough, Stevens; Furman, Duffy, Wellens, Coppinger; Macheda, Robinson
