Preview: Leeds United vs. Birmingham City

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Championship match between Leeds United and Birmingham City.

Leeds United will be looking to turn around their recent run of poor form when Birmingham City visit Elland Road on Sunday.

Brian McDermott's side have lost four of their last six games, the latest coming against Derby County before the international break.

Birmingham's defeat at the hands of Bolton Wanderers last time out means that the Blues have also lost four of their last six league matches.

McDermott is expected to make changes to the Leeds side that lost at Derby, with Sam Byram pushing for a start after recovering from injury.

Midfielder Luke Murphy could also come into the side at the expense of Alex Mowatt.

For Birmingham, Neal Eardley will miss out due to injury, while David Murphy is doubtful after picking up a knee injury against Bolton.

Wade Elliott could be recalled by manager Lee Clark after recovering from a calf injury.
