Birmingham have lost their last five meetings with Rovers – can they stop it becoming six in Lancashire? Six-time FA Cup winners Blackburn eliminated fellow Championship side Norwich to set up this meeting, with Jack Vale scoring the only goal of the game after an underhit pass put Canaries 'keeper Tim Krul in all kinds of trouble. Rovers haven't reached this stage of the FA Cup since 2017, but with promotion back to the Premier League for the first time in over a decade looking like a real possibility, Jon Dahl Tomasson's side may have other things on their mind.
The Rovers boss has made just two changes to his side today, with Hayden Carter coming in for the suspended Daniel Ayala, and Sam Gallagher replacing Jack Vale, who drops to the bench. Birmingham are on a rotten run of form in the league, losing five in a row since beating Reading in mid-December. Their one win in that time came at Forest Green in the previous round of the FA Cup, but the Blues didn't have things all their own way. Ben Stevenson gave the home side the lead inside 10 minutes, but Lukas Jutkiewicz and Kevin Long both scored in the space of 15 second-half minutes to calm Brummie nerves. Birmingham make four changes to the side, with Etheridge preferred to Ruddy in goal. Jutkiewicz is rewarded for his goal against Preston last weekend with a start today.
