Birmingham City travel to Leicester City this evening as west meets east in terms of the Midlands in the FA Cup fifth round at the King Power Stadium.
The two have not met for a while, owing to the fact that the Foxes have established themselves in the Premier League and, in recent years, the Blues have been occupied trying to get themselves away from the Championship drop zone.
This season, though, they should have no real fears of that happening and under Pep Clotet they are becoming a side that is hard to beat – they just need to try and win a few more games.
Tonight, then, they have a free swing at the Foxes and they will be dangerous with their attacking players in good form at the moment.
Clotet has named his side for the clash in Leicestershire, too:
TEAM: Here's our starting XI for tonight's game.
◾️ Kieft starts
◾️ Mrabti comes in
◾️ Burke makes bench

And this is the reaction to it from Blues fans on social media:
Sunjic and Kieftenbeld in the middle? We’re ending the game with 9 men
