Blackburn v Birmingham preview

Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer could hand a start to Josh King when Rovers host Birmingham at Ewood Park on Sunday.

The Norwegian international recovered from a dead leg in time to come off the bench at half-time during the goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day and is expected to reclaim his starting birth in place of Chris Taylor.

Goalkeeper Paul Robinson has stepped up his recovery from a long-term back injury but is unlikely to feature just yet.

Both Corry Evans and Dickson Etuhu are doubts with respective ankle injuries and Bowyer will need assess the duo before deciding on their availability, although it is unlikely either will feature.
