Team Information, Preview, and Birmingham vs Plymouth Lineups

Birmingham

The hosts have some injury issues before the match with Marc Roberts, Marcel Oakley, Tyler Roberts, and George Hall having some health problems. Birmingham is looking for a third straight victory.

Expected lineup: Ruddy, Buchanan, Sanderson, Long, Laird, Bielik, Sunjic, Anderson, Dembele, Bacuna, Hogan.

Plymouth

The visiting team won League One last season which gave them a direct promotion to the Championship. So far they are holding their own, but the season is long and tough and continuity will be the key. Plymouth has no serious injury problems at present.

Expected lineup: Hazard, Edwards, Gibson, Scarr, Kesler, Cundle, Azaz, Houghton, Whittaker, Hardie, Mumba.

Player to Watch: Lukas Jutkiewicz

Birmingham had a positive start to the season and one of the players that has everything to do with it is Lukas Jutkiewicz. The 34-year-old striker is in his seventh year at Birmingham and despite his age and lack of minutes, his contribution is on a high level. It is especially impressive that Jutkiewicz managed to score a couple of goals in three appearances while playing barely a tenth of all the available minutes during those matches.

Jutkiewicz has spent almost their entire career in England playing even in the Premier League with Everton. He also had a short spell with Motherwell in Scotland which is his only non-England experience. Over a total of 303 matches played for Birmingham, Jutkiewicz scored 64 goals while delivering 26 assists.
