Birmingham City haven’t let their nine point deduction affect them in recent times as they’ve managed to impress against the likes of Derby, Leeds and Sheffield United.
However, Garry Monk’s side will face a difficult test later on today as they’ll travel to the New York Stadium to face Paul Warne’s Rotherham United, who were narrowly beaten by Swansea City last time out.
What’s the News?
Much to the delight of supporters, Birmingham City received a big boost prior to kick-off, as according to BBC Sport’s pre-match team news, Lukas Jutkiewicz is expected to feature.
It’s understood that Monk will check on his squad ahead of today’s game, but Jutkiewicz is expected to play a part.
Of course, his inclusion is key for Birmingham City as he’s been influential this season, producing 12 goals and 10 assists in the Championship.
Garry Monk’s men can ensure safety with a win over Paul Warne’s men as they’re currently seven points ahead of the Millers with just three games to play in the Championship.
Of course, having Jutkiewicz in the side will be key as he’s been the source of all things brilliant in the final third this season, with his knock downs and ability to hold the ball up helping Che Adams thrive. And, he’s shown that he can find the back of the net on a consistent basis, which has certainly pleased supporters.
Birmingham City fans, surely Jutkiewicz being expected to feature is great news? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
