Birmingham City have enjoyed a positive run of form recently as they continue to hunt down a play-off place under Garry Monk.
The Blues have won their last four Championship games and are unbeaten in 11, so it’s safe to say that they’re the form team in the division at this moment in time.
Interestingly, Birmingham City will travel to Pride Park to face Derby County in their next Championship fixture. The Rams are enjoying an inspiring run of their own and are in the race for automatic promotion, so this will be one of the biggest games in the Blues’ campaign.
So, Garry Monk must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO Birmingham City stars…
Jacques Maghoma has established himself as one of the most consistent performers in the side this season, with a regular place on the left-hand side now guaranteed.
Although, the experienced winger is facing a race against time to be fit for today’s clash, but Monk is hopeful to have him back in the side.
The Congo international has the ability to cause the opposition’s defenders some trouble and could even chip in with a goal, so the Blues will be desperate to welcome him back.
Che Adams has always displayed moments of promise and class in the blue shirt, but consistency in front of goal has been one of his biggest issues at St Andrew’s.
The forward’s pace will cause the Rams all sorts of problems, with Richard Keogh not being blessed with a large amount of pace at his growing age.
It could be a close-knit encounter that requires a moment of brilliance to secure all three points, which is why Adams must start as a game-changer for Birmingham City.
