MATCH ANALYSIS

Pressure is mounting on Stoke manager Nathan Jones after a 0-3 hammering at home to league-leaders Leeds on Saturday but this match against a rather lacklustre Birmingham side could offer up a point. The Blues are unbeaten in their last five at home in the league, and this could be a stalemate.
