City Go Into Battle At Birmingham Minus Pitman.

City Go Into Battle At Birmingham Minus Pitman.

Bristol City travel to St Andrews on Saturday looking for a win against a team who need the points themselves.

Birmingham have hit the play-off places in fine form and will be looking to extend their run of good results of late as they try to enter the play-off lottery as the team to beat.

But Bristol City are now scrapping for their lives, they go to the Midlands knowing that another win will help them out in their fight to stay in the Championship.

But the Robins have to do the deed without the services of striker Brett Pitman who saw red in the game against Coventry on Easter Monday and he sits out the next three games.

Also missing from the side will be Lewin Nyatanga who is struggling with an ankle problem and James Wilson has been ruled out for the season with his own ankle knock.

Midfielder Marvin Elliott (Achilles) and striker David Clarkson (ankle) will also remain sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.
