Birmingham vs Cardiff Latest News, Team Information, and Lineups

Birmingham

The hosts have continued their impressive start to the season with their third straight league win while the focus is now shifted toward the EFL Cup. In their opening match of the competition, Birmingham defeated Cheltenham. Marcel Oakley and Tyler Roberts are set to miss the game through injury.

Provisional lineup: Ruddy, Long, Sanderson, Bacuna, Buchanan, Bielik, Sunjic, Anderson, Hogan, Miyoshi, Stansfield.

Cardiff

There was a reason to celebrate for the visiting side over the weekend as they got their first Championship win. However, the job continues to bring additional worries with another tough encounter in the EFL Cup. Cardiff have beaten Colchester on penalties in their opening fixture. Ryan Allsop is injured.

Provisional lineup: Alnwick, Collins, McGuinness, Ng, Goutas, Ralls, Siopis, Ugbo, Ramsey, O'Dowda, Meite.

Player to Watch: Jay Stansfield

Birmingham's newest recruit had a stunning debut in the Championship over the weekend scoring a goal as a substitute. He signed on loan from Fulham just a couple of days before his first game. Stansfield has been at Fulham since joining the youth program four years ago but he never got a real chance at first-team football.

He had a great run in the Fulham U18 team scoring 31 goals in 27 matches and the hope is for Birmingham to get the best out of the 20-year-old striker. Fulham doesn't have a place for him in its first team at the moment but the club didn't want to sell the player rather sending him on loan to gain some experience.
