Birmingham (h)

Day after Boxing Day game, doesn't quite have the same ring to it, but that's what it is this year.

They'll still be in "I'm going to try to impress Zola" mode, so it could be a difficult game.

F****t saved by goal difference.

Very surprised Rowett was sacked, he made them hard to beat, which was their main asset. Not sure they will still be that under Zola, who I'd imagine will want to be more attacking.

Smacks of what many clubs have done (notably in recent memory, Charlton with Curbishley) not realising when they are on to something good and messing it up wanting more.

Sacking Rowett was scandalous, hope they freefall down the league.

After yesterday's fixtures we are 8th and can only go up to 7th with a win (or draw) today. But can make a 5 point gap to 9th

Derby County will set a new club record if they keep a seventh consecutive home clean sheet.

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.

Birmingham's Paul Caddis is available after three months out with a dislocated shoulder but may not start.

Midfielder Stephen Gleeson has a toe injury, and striker Clayton Donaldson is out with a calf problem.

Match facts

Derby have won just once in their last seven league games with Birmingham (D4 L2).
Birmingham have found the back of the net in each of their last 14 away trips to Derby in league competition.
Derby have won five of their last six league matches at home and are unbeaten during that period (D1) having lost the previous three in a row.
Birmingham's Lukas Jutkiewicz has scored the most headed goals in the Championship this season (6).
