Sports Mole looks ahead to the Championship fixture between Huddersfield Town and Birmingham City.

Birmingham City will be looking to move out of the Championship relegation zone when they travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Lee Clark's side have dropped to 22nd place in the table following a run of four defeats from six games, the latest coming against Charlton Athletic last week.

Huddersfield's defeat to Wigan Athletic last Saturday was the club's third in four matches.

Leading goalscorer James Vaughan will sit out the final match of his three-game ban, so Jon Stead is expected to deputise in attack.

Adam Clayton and Martin Paterson could return to the squad after the pair were dropped, amid reports that they were embroiled in a scuffle on the training ground.

Clark has no new injury concerns and could name the same side that were beaten by Charlton.
