Birmingham City are busy preparing for their game against Reading as manager Gianfranco Zola tries to win his first game in charge of the St.Andrews side.

The Italian is now without a win in nine games and although there has been a handful of draws along the way, he will be desperate to bag a win in front of the home crowd.

On Saturday, Blues were caught napping at the back far to many times and that will be something Zola and his backroom staff will want to address because that is part of his downfall.

I fully expect Zola to name his strongest side when the Royals visit B9 on Tuesday evening. Down below is the side that I think Zola will name along with the seven substitutes…

GK: Kuszczak
RB: Nsue
CB: Grounds
CB: Shotton
LB: Keita
CM: Gardner
CM: Davis
CM: Gleeson
RW: Frei
ST: Jutkiewicz
LW: Adams

Substitutes: Legzdins, Scarr, Robinson, Tesche, Kieftenbeld, Sinclair, Cotterill.

Blues fans, what do you make of the team that has been predicted? Is it one that you would be happy to watch? Let us know in the comment section down below!

  • I want to see
    3-4-3. The starting 11 would look something like this GK: Kuszcak, CD: Scarr, CD: Morrison, CD: Shotton, AWBL: Keita, AWBR: Nsue, CM: Gardner, CM: Kieftenbeld, IFL: Frei, IFR: Adams, CF: Jutkiewicz, SUBS: Legzdins, Grounds, Cogley, Tesche, Davis, Cotterill, Storer, I would give Storer a chance until Donaldson is fit.

  • I like the idea of using Grounds at CH. He won the most headers at Norwich on S at. Reading play with three at the back so I would go for pace over height and heading ability. Moore and McShane are not the quickest., Juke on the bench to start. Also have Sinclair on the bench as I think at this level he will score goals. Storer to wait his time.
