Rock-bottom Bristol City will hand fitness tests to three first-team regulars ahead of the clash with Birmingham at Ashton Gate where defeat would see the Robins relegated to npower League One.

Centre back Liam Fontaine and midfielder Stephen Pearson (both ankle) and Wales defender Lewin Nyatanga, who broke his nose in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Bolton, will all be assessed ahead of kick off.

However, striker Jon Stead is not ready to return from a groin injury and captain Cole Skuse underwent surgery on his knee cartilage on Monday, ending his campaign.

City, who have not beaten Birmingham in eight games since a 3-0 victory back in November 1993, could still be relegated even if they are victorious - provided Peterborough or Blackburn are victorious on Tuesday night.
