Team News: Robert Tesche handed Birmingham City debut

Robert Tesche makes his Birmingham City debut against Championship strugglers Blackpool.

Nottingham Forest loanee Robert Tesche will make his Birmingham City debut against relegation-threatened Blackpool in the Championship at St Andrew's.

Tesche replaces Stephen Gleeson, who begins his three-match ban after his sending-off in the 1-0 win over Brentford at the weekend, City's first league victory in nine games.

Meanwhile, Blackpool will be without teenage winger Henry Cameron after the 17-year-old damaged ankle ligaments in the 3-1 defeat against fellow relegation candidates Wigan Athletic last weekend.

Sheffield Wednesday loanee Gary Madine continues in attack for the Tangerines, who go into the game 15 points from safety.

Birmingham City: Randolph, Caddis, Spector, Kiernan, Grounds, Davis, Tesche, Cotterill, Shinnie, Gray, Donaldson
Subs: Robinson, Thomas, Novak, Reilly, Zigic, Doyle, Dyer

Blackpool: Parish, Maher, Hall, Addison, Aldred, Ferguson, Perkins, Telford, O'Hara, Delfouneso, Madine
Subs: Clarke, Oliver, Barkhuizen, McMahon, Sene, Boney, Osavi-Samuel
