Wes Thomas makes his debut for Birmingham City while Nottingham Forest make four changes ahead of their Championship clash at St Andrews.

Birmingham City manager Lee Clark has handed a debut to deadline-day signing Wes Thomas, after the striker joined the club on loan from Bournemouth until the end of the season.

Callum Reilly drops to the Blues bench while Marlon King and Jack Butland retain their places in the side, with the latter signing for Stoke City on Thursday in a deal that sees him finish the year with the Championship side.

Alex McLeish makes four changes to his Nottingham Forest side, as he brings Dan Harding, Guy Moussi, Andy Reid and Darius Henderson into the starting lineup.

Elliott Ward, Simon Gillett, Simon Cox and Dexter Blackstock all drop to the bench for the visitors.

Birmingham City: Butland; Caddis, Caldwell, Davies, Robinson; Burke, Gomis, Elliott, Hall; King, Thomas

Nottingham Forest: Darlow, Jara Reyes, Halford, Collins, Harding, Cohen, Moussi, Lansbury, Reid, Henderson, Sharp
