Birmingham City will be without Nikola Zigic for this evening's Championship fixture against Portsmouth because of injury.

Instead, Adam Rooney will partner Marlon King up front, while Keith Fahey will start in the centre of midfield.

Visiting Pompey are unchanged from the weekend, meaning that Ricardo Rocha has passed a fitness test to start in defence.

Birmingham: Myhill; Spector, Davies, Caldwell, Murphy; Burke, N'Daw, Fahey, Mutch; Rooney, King

Portsmouth: Henderson; Ben Haim, Rocha, Pearce, Halford; Etuhu, Lawrence, Mullins, Ward; Huseklepp; Futacs
