Nikola Zigic fails to shake off an injury in time for Birmingham City's home Championship fixture against Portsmouth this evening.

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
