Confirmed: Birmingham City v Leeds United line-ups, Carayol dropped

Birmingham take on Leeds United this evening, and the team line-ups have been announced.

Birmingham City take on Leeds United in a midweek Championship clash.

The Blues will be hoping to make home advantage count, and do the double over Leeds this season after beating the Whites 2-0 at Elland Road earlier this season.

Here is a look at how the two teams line up for the fixture at St Andrew's...

Birmingham City starting XI: Legzdins, Caddis, Morrison, Shotton, Gleeson, Davis, Kieftenbild, Cotterill, Donaldson, Lafferty

Substitutes: Kuszczak, Fabbrini, Toral, Vaughan, Maghoma, Spector, Soloman-Otabor

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Berardi, Bamba, Cooper, Taylor, Diagouraga, Murphy, Cook, Dallas, Antenucci, Wood

Substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Coyle, Bellusci, Adeyemi, Phillips, Mowatt, Carayol

Birmingham head into the fixture above Leeds in the table by 11 points, in ninth position compared to 15th place.

Gary Rowett's side were hoping a month ago to gatecrash the play-offs, but a run of five games without a win appears to have put paid to that, nine points short of sixth place.

They at least ended their winless run at the weekend, beating Reading 2-0.

Leeds meanwhile are without a win in their last four, losing three of those games, but won three in a row before that, and Steve Evans will be keen to stop their slide down the table.
