Birmingham City manager Steve Cotterill will be hoping that his side can build on their encouraging away performance against Sunderland at the weekend when they take on Norwich City in this seasons Boxing Day fixture at St.Andrew’s.

Norwich will be hoping to get back to winning ways at St.Andrew’s after they lost on Friday night against Brentford at Carrow Road after a five minute brace from Lasse Vibe was enough to secure all three points for the Bees despite a late goal from Nelson Oliveira.

Heading into the game, Blues will be without the suspended Sam Gallagher who was sent off on Saturday for two bookable offences, whilst they will continue to be without the injured quartet of Che Adams, Isaac Vassell, Marc Roberts and Carl Jenkinson.

The Canaries will be running a late fitness test on Grant Hanley after the defender hobbled off on Friday night with an ankle injury.

Down below is the side that I think Cotterill could name for the festive fixture against the Canaries…

GK: Stockdale
RB: Colin
CB: Dean
CB: Morrison
LB: Grounds
CDM: Gardner
CM: Kieftenbeld
CM: Davis
RW: Jota
ST: Jutkiewicz
LW: Boga

Substitutes: Trueman, Nsue, Bramall, Gleeson, Lowe, Ndoye, Maghoma.
