Birmingham v Fulham preview

Birmingham will be without leading scorer Craig Gardner and defender Liam Ridgewell through suspension.
Nine-goal Gardner will complete a two-game ban while Ridgewell will serve a one-match suspension for his red card in last weekend’s 2-1 reverse at at Newcastle.
Stuart Parnaby and David Murphy will be in contention to replace Ridgewell at left-back. Striker Nikola Zigic is still battling to overcome groin and hip problems and unlikely to be fit.
Fulham have doubts over Bobby Zamora and Simon Davies.
Davies has not trained since being kicked on the calf in Monday’s 5-2 home defeat by Liverpool, while Zamora did not complete training on Friday because of soreness in his groin.
Full-back Chris Baird looks like missing the last two games of the season after deciding not to contest the charge of using an abusive gesture towards referee Lee Mason in the Liverpool match.
Birmingham (from): Foster, Carr, Johnson, Jiranek, Parnaby, Murphy, Larsson, Ferguson, Bowyer, Jerome, Phillips, Doyle, Hleb, Fahey, Derbyshire, Mutch, Davies, Bentley, Beausejour, Zigic.
Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Hangeland, Senderos, Hughes, Salcido, Etuhu, Davies, Murphy, Sidwell, Greening, Dempsey, Dembele, Zamora, Johnson, Stockdale, Kelly, Gudjohnsen, Kakuta, Baird, Gera.
