Match Preview, Team Information, and Bristol City vs Birmingham Lineups

Bristol City

Manager Nigel Pearson is doing a fine job with this squad which was shown from the start of the preseason training and the friendly matches the team played with some high-scoring performances and won a part of that measure. Andreas Weimann, Rob Atkinson, and Ayman Benarous are unavailable.

Provisional lineup: O'Leary, Tanner, Vyner, Dickie, Pring, James, Williams, Knight, Sykes, Wells, Bell.

Birmingham

The visiting team started the season well with two wins and a draw during a couple of different competitions. Birmingham is used to playing for promotion and that will not change this season as well.

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

Player to Watch: Jason Knight

With Bristol City playing in stunning form, there ought to be someone who goes out of the way and make these performances count. Jason Knight was brought in to replace Alex Scott who was sold in a record deal to Bournemouth and Bristol City's newest member did not disappoint in his first two appearances for the club.

Knight is a midfield player who doesn't mind scoring goals. He had 14 in 166 matches for Derby, his only team so far, or rather, a club that raised him. Because of the financial trouble that Derby has been going through, the management didn't have much choice but to sell their talented player.

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
