Team News: Burke returns for Birmingham
Chris Burke comes back into Birmingham City team having missed the 4-4 draw with Stoke City in midweek, while Charlton boss Chris Powell names two changes.

Birmingham City boss Lee Clarke has named Chris Burke in his starting lineup for the visit of Charlton Athletic in the Championship this afternoon.

The 29-year-old missed the pulsating 4-4 draw with Stoke City in the Capital One Cup in midweek through hamstring injury.

Nevertheless the Scot has shaken off the injury which threatened his participation today and is poised to face the Addicks.

Clarke names three changes in total from Tuesday's goal-fest, with Darren Randolph replacing Colin Doyle between the posts, while Kyle Bartley and Demarai Gray are also afforded starting berths.

Meanwhile, Charlton boss Chris Powell has named two changes to his lineup following last week's stalemate with Wigan Athletic.

Defender Richard Wood drops out of the team in favour of Dorian Dervite, while Johnnie Jackson replaces injured Yann Kermorgant.

Birmingham City: Randolph; Caddis, Bartley, Burn, Robinson; Adeyemi, Reilly; Gray, Novak, Burke; Zigic

Charlton Athletic: Hamer; Wilson, Wiggins, Dervite, Morrison; Pritchard, Stewart, Cousins, Stephens, Jackson; Church
