Birmingham City v Leeds United: Latest team news, TV/Live Stream, tickets, kick-off timeLeeds United travel to Birmingham City for the second game of the Championship season for each side, who both picked up a draw in their opening fixture. footballleagueworld video of the dayThe Whites are expected to be among the favourites for promotion this season under the guidance of two-time second tier winner with Norwich City, Daniel Farke. Crysencio Summerville's added-time equaliser capped a comeback for his side in his first game in charge. The Whites came back from 2-0 down to draw the game at Elland Road following a header by Leeds' captain Liam Cooper early in the second half to begin the fightback from the hosts.
Speaking via his pre-match press conference, Eustace confirmed Roberts and Laird are available again, with George Hall back in training:Marcel Oakley currently remains on the sidelines after a fresh blow, making Laird's return to action nice and timely. However, Eustace appears to be stocked with plenty of fit and ready options in attack. Meanwhile, Leeds are struggling with issues all over the park, with Crysencio Summerville and Liam Cooper the latest players to join the treatment table. Dutch winger Summerville will be out for a few weeks with a groin issue, whilst a ruptured plantar fascia will put Cooper out of action for around eight weeks. Farke is still sweating on his striking options heading into Saturday's clash.

Both Georginio Rutter and Patrick Bamford hobbled out of their final pre-season friendly with Hearts and missed the Cardiff clash, as well as Mateo Joseph, who was pictured on crutches, too. Rutter has been confirmed as likely to be involved in some capacity by Farke, but it is unclear if he will be ready to start the game at St. Andrew's. Jack Harrison, Tyler Adams, Junior Firpo, and Sam Greenwood are four other senior players missing the start of the season, alongside Cody Drameh who was not involved against Cardiff but came off the bench against Shrewsbury and will be pushing to start the game. Long-term absentee Stuart Dallas remains out of action and the selection of Wilfried Gnonto isn't guaranteed, either.

That is particularly true of recently relegated Leeds and many players remaining the subject of much interest during the summer already. Their ambition is to bounce back to the top-flight at the first time of asking, but the Whites face another stern test in the West Midlands, with Birmingham hoping to be far more competitive within the Championship this season. Ethan Laird and Tyler Roberts were both withdrawn in the second half of Saturday’s draw with Swansea due to ongoing injury concerns.
Birmingham, meanwhile, drew their opening game with Swansea City in South Wales. Swansea were heading for defeat after Birmingham debutant Siriki Dembele took advantage of a defensive mistake to put Blues in front just before half-time. John Eustace's men looked well-placed to claim victory as they were the better of the two teams but a moment of attacking quality allowed Jerry Yates to mark his debut with an easy finish. Despite neither side winning on opening day, there is renewed optimism surrounding both sets of fans this summer, with the two clubs under new ownership, and the potential start of an exciting new era. Of course, with the window still open, things could change quickly, and the futures of key players will remain uncertain.
Laird was taken off with a hamstring issue, while Roberts will hope to face his former side and prove a point but has been nursing a groin complaint. Marc Roberts is likely to remain out of the match after picking up a calf injury last week, leaving Eustace with just two fit centre-backs. It remains to be seen whether Gary Gardner will feature, having missed a chunk of Blues’ pre-season campaign.
