Sports Mole previews Leeds United's trip to Birmingham City on Saturday.

Two of the Championship's mid-table sides meet at St Andrew's on Saturday afternoon when Birmingham City host Leeds United.

Birmingham are unbeaten in three matches but are six points clear of the relegation zone. Lee Clark's side could secure safety with a win over Leeds.

Leeds manager Brian McDermott will be looking for a third straight win since replacing Neil Warnock in the Elland Road hotseat last week.

The Yorkshire outfit, who are currently 11th in the table, are one point and one place ahead of their hosts.

Nikola Zigic could retain his place up front, after starting as the lone striker in Birmingham's 1-0 win at Bristol City in midweek.

McDermott could decide to name the same XI which saw off Burnley in midweek. Steve Morison is in contention to start up front in place of El-Hadji Diouf.
