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.

Blues fans, what do you make of the team that has been predicted? Let us know in the comment section down below!

  • Bumper crowd,Norwich on a downer equals what? Anybody’s guess with our luck.Three points would be massive despite our owners persevering with Cotterill.It is still my opinion that they have given up hope of any progress with the club hence Cotterill and I would expect no money in January.If and a big If and we get ‘take off’ over the next two,then it will become interesting.

  • 5 shots on target in the first half was man u form …do it in two half and make this club proud again …you have the power use it …dont look back the past it’s gone …….SUPER BLUES ……COME ON..

  • A Christmas wish to Santa…
    Our season so far has been full of woe
    With not many players scoring with any toe
    Since August we have dropped to the bottom of the table
    Whilst watching our rivals rise and proving more able
    What we want Santa is a striker who can bulge the net
    Scoring at will and making sure we are well set
    To climb the table and prove the doubters wrong
    Which will make us battle weary fans a happy throng
    Finally this as Christmas Day is with us once more
    Bless all the writers and commentators galore.
    Happy Xmas Vital Birmingham Football.

  • Back to back wins would be heaven this week-and why not.Burton have just done it.Six massive points would make it a season changer and so for me I am giving the whole club my own vote of confidence.Please don’t let me down.
