Unbeaten in their last five league games, Derby County will be eager to get the three points when they host the inconsistent Birmingham at the Pride Park Stadium in the 23rd round of the English Championship.
The hosts have been very consistent in recent weeks as the team have managed to win four games in a row before they played Fulham away from home last game in a game that finished 2-2.
Derby are sitting in 8th place in the league table with 36 points from 10 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses. The team have scored 23 goals and conceded 15 since the start of the season.
Forward Nick Blackman and defender Ikechi Anya are back in training after knee problems but this game is likely to come too soon for them. Left-back Max Lowe remains sidelined by a groin problem, missing a fifth match in a row.
The visitors are sitting 3 places behind the hosts in the Championship league table. Birmingham have been suffering from inconsistency since the start of the season. The team have collected 6 points from a possible 15 in the last 5 league games. Their last game was against Brighton & Hove Albion at home where the final score was 2-1 to the visitors.
Birmingham are sitting in the 11th place in the league table with 34 points from 9 wins, 7 draws ad 6 losses. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the campaign.
Full-back Paul Caddis, who has missed the majority of the season with a dislocated shoulder that required surgery in October, is fit again. Diego Fabbrini and Stephen Gleeson are both doubts.
