Player to Watch:
Barry Ferguson - Regarded by many Birmingham fans as their player of the season despite the heroics of Joe Hart and Roger Johnson. Ferguson has formed a formidable partnership with Bowyer in centre midfield and the Scotsman has been key to their success this season. He makes them tick with his passing and his movement and Ferguson can play either as a defensive rock or a creative midfielder. Vieira and Barry will have to shackle the Scot.
