The Match: Birmingham City (A)

4 March 2015

Preview Tuesday's Game

4 March 2015
St Andrew's Stadium
Birmingham City vs Blackpool
On Wednesday evening Lee Clark returns to Birmingham City for the first time since his departure earlier this season, and will hope to guide Blackpool to three crucial away points.
 
Clark spent more than two seasons at St Andrew's, but is now focused on securing Pool's first away win of the campaign on Wednesday evening.
 
The gap between Pool and safety still sits at 15 points after Rotherham Untied lost on Tuesday, but the situation remains bleak for Clark's side.
 
They were beaten by fellow strugglers Wigan Athletic on the weekend, and have 12 games left to save their Championship status.
 
Birmingham are looking secure in mid-table under Gary Rowett, and on Saturday ended a run of eight games without a victory after a 1-0 win over Brentford.
 
Team News
Henry Cameron has been ruled out for four to six weeks with ligament damage, so won't travel to Birmingham. Andrea Orlandi is again a doubt, but Clark will hope Jamie O'Hara will be passed fit. Niall Maher could come back into contention, but Charles Dunne serves the second match of his suspension.
 
Stephen Gleeson misses out through his own suspension for The Blues, while Koby Arthur remains sidelined, along with Michael Morrison. Robert Tesche could make his debut, after joining from Nottingham Forest on loan, while Gavin Gunning and Matt Green are back in training, but unlikely to feature.
 
In The Build-Up
Blackpool were beaten 3-1 by Wigan at the weekend, while they lost 4-0 at Brentford on their last away trip. Birmingham beat Brentford 1-0 on Saturday, after they'd lost three of their last four matches previously.
 
Previous Meeting
The Seasiders beat City 1-0 at Bloomfield Road earlier in the season thanks to Steven Davies' goal. At St Andrew's last season Pool earned a 1-1 draw, after Ricardo Fuller swept home an equaliser.
