Birmingham City host Crystal Palace in the Championship on Saturday.

Struggling Birmingham City face second-placed Crystal Palace on Saturday in the Championship as they look to edge further away from the drop zone.

Birmingham have managed just one win from six - a 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough at the end of November - and stuttered to a 1-0 defeat away to Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

Palace's form has gone off the boil in recent games and they were held to a thrilling 2-2 draw at home to Blackpool on Saturday.

Marlon King scored a goal at the wrong end for Birmingham but has been in good form so will most likely keep his place up front.

Ian Holloway is likely to stick with a similar XI that threatened Blackpool on several occasions.

Recent form

Birmingham: LLDWL

Palace: WLDWD

Possible lineups

Birmingham: Butland; Caddis, Davies, Caldwell, Robinson; Elliott, Spector, Mullins, Hall; Redmond; King

Palace: Speroni; Blake, Ramage, Delaney, Parr; Zaha, Dikgacoi, Garvan, Bolassie; Jedinak, Murray

Sports Mole says: 0-2
