Sports Mole previews Birmingham City's game against Brighton & Hove Albion at home on Saturday.

Brighton & Hove Albion travel to St Andrew's to take on Birmingham City on Saturday looking for their third Championship win in a row.

Gus Poyet's men are currently eighth in the league, three points off a playoff spot.

They have the fourth-best away record in the Championship, having taken 19 points from 12 games on the road.

The Uruguayan will have a full compliment of players to choose from and is unlikely to make many changes to the side that beat Derby County 2-1 at the Amex Stadium.

Another yellow card for midfielder Dean Hammond will see him get a one-match ban.

Meanwhile, Lee Clark's only absentee is Stephen Carr, who has been missing since September with a knee injury.

The Blues are struggling at the foot of the table, with just five points separating them from 22nd-placed Peterborough United.

Jack Butland should return between the sticks after sitting out Tuesday's 2-1 home defeat to Leeds United in the FA Cup.
