Stoke City will be looking to do something they haven't manage to do all season - score in the first 15 minutes.
The Potters are the only side in the Premier League this season who have failed to score within the first 15 minutes of a Premier League game.
An astonishing 77 per cent of their goals have been scored in the second half.
Building A Fortress
St Andrew's has seen just 25 goals scored all season, which is the lowest in the Premier League.
This low amount of goals has helped Birmingham to string together a good set of results that has seen them lose just two of their last 27 games at home.
Even though they have only lost a small proportion of their games at St Andrew's they are without a win in their last five home games, having drawn four and lost the other one.
Birmingham will be boosted by the news that new signing Obafemi Martins has received international clearance and is set to start for the home side.
James McFadden is likely to miss the game with a knee injury.
The only long term injury concern for the hosts is Scott Dann who remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Possible starting XI: Foster; Carr, Johnson, Jiranek, Ridgewell; Bentley, Gardner, Ferguson, Bowyer; Jerome, Martins.
Stoke head into the game as one of only two teams not to have any players currently injured.
The Potters have no players suspended so that leaves Tony Pulis in a position to pick from his entire squad.
Possible starting XI: Begovic; Wilkinson, Huth, Shawcross, Higginbotham; Pennant, Whitehead, Delap, Etherington; Jones, Carew.
