Peter Whittingham misses out today for the Birmingham trip, the influential midfielder taking a knock in the Millwall game that prevented his travelling to St. Andrew’s. In centre midfield we find the partnership of Jordon Mutch and Aron Gunnarsson, the latter returning to action immediately after a first half knock against the Lions.
In other squad news Simon Lappin takes up a place at left back for Andrew Taylor, with Joe Mason getting the nod to partner Craig Bellamy up top. Kim Bo-Kyung also starts on the left of midfield.
Cardiff City XI v BCFC: Marshall, Lappin, Turner, Hudson, Connolly, Kim, Mutch, Gunnarsson, Conway, Bellamy, Mason. Subs: Lewis, McNaughton, Cowie, Gestede, Noone, Ralls, Helguson
