CONFIRMED: Birmingham and Leeds United line-ups

Birmingham City FC - St. Andrews

Here is how Birmingham City and Leeds United will line up for this afternoon’s Championship match:

Birmingham City starting XI: Randolph, Eardley, Edgar, Hall, Grounds, Cotterill, Caddis, Davis, Shea, Donaldson, Thomas

Subs: Doyle, Robinson, Spector, Gleeson, Duffy, Gray, Shinnie

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Berardi, Pearce, Bellusci, Warnock, Cook, Mowatt, Bianchi, Sloth, Sharp, Antenucci

Subs: S Taylor, Wootton, Cooper, Austin, Tonge, Doukara, Adryan

Following the international break, Birmingham City and Leeds United kick-off the return of Championship football with an intriguing lunch-time encounter.

The two sides are currently 20th and 18th respectively and Leeds will be hoping to replicate the result the last time the two sides met, when United came out 3-1 winners back in April.

Having also triumphed 2-1 at St. Andrew’s in the FA Cup back in January, Leeds’ players should go into this match relatively confident.

The hosts are definitely without the injured Lee Novak but Brek Shea is included in the squad after moving on loan from Stoke City.

For Leeds, the big news is that new signing Adryan is on the bench after arriving on loan from Brazilian side Flamengo.
