Team News: Three changes for Leicester

Leicester make three changes for their trip to St. Andrews to face Birmingham City in Championship action.

Nigel Pearson has been forced into making several changes for Leicester City's visit to Birmingham City this afternoon.

Summer signing Jamie Vardy has suffered with illness all week and is therefore only fit for a place on the bench, with Martyn Waghorn taking his berth in attack.

In central defence, Zak Whitbread comes in for Sean St Ledger, who is unavailable after picking up a hamstring strain on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

There is better injury news for Blues boss Lee Clark, who has Curtis Davies and David Murphy available after they both shook off leg injuries.

Birmingham: Butland; Hurst, Davies, Caldwell, Murphy; Burke, Spector, Morrison, Redmond; Lovenkrands, King

Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Morgan, Whitbread, Konchesky; Dyer, King, Drinkwater, Knockaert; Waghorn, Nugent
