PREVIEW | Birmingham City

A full look ahead to the Carabao Cup tie against the Blues

7 August 2017

The Reds travel to St Andrew’s on Tuesday evening to face Birmingham City in the First Round of the Carabao Cup (7.45pm).

The meeting will be the first ever between the two teams, with Harry Kewell’s men looking to make amends for Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Port Vale. 

The Blues began their Sky Bet Championship campaign with a 1-0 defeat away to Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon.
