Preview: Birmingham City vs. Doncaster Rovers

Sports Mole previews Tuesday night's Championship match at St Andrew's as Birmingham City host Doncaster Rovers.

Two sides coming off impressive victories on Saturday meet tomorrow night in the Championship as Birmingham City host Doncaster Rovers.

Birmingham trounced lowly Barnsley 3-0 at Oakwell, while Doncaster inflicted the second defeat of the season on high-flying Queens Park Rangers.

Despite this, both sides are still deep in the bottom half and are separated by just a single point in 18th and 19th.

The only change that manager Lee Clark is likely to make to his Birmingham side is to bring back Chris Burke, with Shane Ferguson the one who may drop to the bench.

Paul Dickov has no reason to tinker with his side after the impressive victory over Harry Redknapp's Rangers.

Birmingham have an excellent record against Rovers, winning the last eight games against the South Yorkshire side with a record that dates back to April 1954.
