Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's Championship match between Birmingham City and Sheffield Wednesday.

Birmingham City welcome Sheffield Wednesday to St Andrews on Tuesday evening, with both teams still looking to ease any relegation fears.

Wednesday are two points and two places above the relegation zone while the Blues are only two points ahead of them in what is a very tight bottom half of the table.

The Blues' form has been inconsistent with several good wins amongst some frustrating draws and defeats. They were thrashed 4-0 by Watford at the weekend.

Lee Clark left Nikola Zigic out of the matchday squad for that game after heavily criticising his attitude. It remains to be seen whether the big striker will be recalled for Tuesday's match.

Wednesday on the other hand are unbeaten in their last four, having fought back from two down against Derby County in their last match.

Boss Dave Jones is expected to name a largely unchanged lineup, with only on-loan striker Connor Wickham a possible change.
