Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship match between Leicester City and Birmingham City.

Leicester City will be looking to maintain their place in the Championship's top six when they host Birmingham City on Saturday.

Nigel Pearson's side picked up their second win of the campaign when they beat Derby County 1-0 at Pride Park last weekend.

Birmingham have lost two of their three Championship matches, including last week's 1-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion.

Leicester will have Paul Konchesky available for selection after a move away from the club fell through earlier this week.

Birmingham boss Lee Clark is expected to name the same side that lost to Brighton, with Lee Novak and Andrew Shinnie starting in attack.
