The Blues boss insists the cup competition is important to the club and is likely to field a strong line-up, arguably stronger than the one that battled out a hard-fought goalless draw at the City Ground.

Fringe players Lee Carsley, Stuart Parnaby and Gregory Vignal continue to be ruled out by injury - while new signing Michel is ineligible having not been at the club when the initial tie took place.

Blues (from): Hart, Maik Taylor, Doyle, Carr, R Johnson, Dann, Queudrue, Martin Taylor, Ridgewell, Larsson, Ferguson, Bowyer, McFadden, Fahey, D Johnson, McSheffrey, Jerome, Benitez, Phillips.
