The only other injury concern after Blackburn was Marcus Forss who limped off late in that game, but told BBC Tees after that it was just a precaution and that he should be fine for this one. Michael Carrick's team is coming up at 2pm. 13:36Craig JohnsBirmingham injury troublesThis from Brian Dick of our sister site Birmingham Live:Eustace has tried to keep the severity of Scott Hogan's injury under wraps for the last few weeks but it would be a surprise if he is fit to face Boro today. The head coach suggested he should be OK for Forest Green on Saturday,. Harlee Dean, Gary Gardner, Nico Gordon and George Friend are also sidelined and there are now concerns about the hamstring attached to Dion Sanderson's leg.
6 mins 0-0Craig JohnsGood Boro breakSteffen gets a good punch on a Birmingham corner and Hackney does well to run it out before freeing Giles down the left. Charging into the box is Crooks and McGree in a two-on-one in Boro's favour and Giles aims for the furthest player McGree. He finds him and McGree's volley is well held by Ruddy, but the Boro man was flagged offside anyway. 3 mins 0-0Craig JohnsThe away endAround 1, 800 tickets sold2 mins 0-0Craig JohnsLine-upAs you were at Blackburn it appears.

Boro playing some nice stuff so far here and controlling possession. 15 mins 0-0Craig JohnsHowson bookedBoro had a decent spell in possession camped in Birmingham's half but Crooks' lay off is slack and allows Hannibal to beat Howson to it who is then found to be late in the tackle to foil the counter. Into the book the Boro skipper goes.
Birmingham vs Boro - Live match updates from St Andrew'sMiddlesbrough take on Birmingham City at St Andrew's looking to extend their good form and start the new year on a high. Boro moved to sixth in the Championship table after beating Blackburn Rovers in their final game of 2022. It extended Michael Carrick's impressive record as Boro head coach to six wins in nine games and they head to the Midlands looking to extend their winning run into the new year. Boro won comfortably at St Andrew's back in March last season but the Blues are a much-improved side this season under new head coach John Eustace but Boro won 1-0 at the Riverside earlier in the season while Leo Percovich was still in caretaker charge before Carrick's arrival.
13:21Craig JohnsJohn Eustace programme notesThe Blues boss said:Today we face a Middlesbrough side who are one of several teams separated by just a few points so we expect another very competitive game. Michael Carrick had a fantastic career as a player and knows football at the highest level. He has been in the job for a couple of months now and their results have picked up so he is having an immediate impact. These sorts of matches are where we need to find a way to come out on top. There will not be much between us, so the challenge is making sure we edge these marginal encounters. 13:14Craig JohnsArrivedHappy new year everyone! Craig JohnsPre-match stat factsBirmingham have won just three of the last 17 league meetings between the two sides, though those three wins did come in the last seven meetingsBoro have picked up four wins from their last five visits to St Andrew's, as many as in the previous 22 combinedBirmingham have lost their first game of the calender year for the last three years, but haven't done that four straight years since 1954Middlesbrough are unbeaten in the first match of the calendar year for nine years now, winning their last threeTroy Deeney scored six goals in seven league meetings against Middlesbrough between 2012 and 2015 but has failed to score in his last four games against BoroCraig JohnsWelcomeHello and welcome to today's live match day blog as Boro look to continue their fine form with victory at St Andrew's against Birmingham City.
He'd surely be a doubt today. Then of course there's the fact the whole team has played the last four matches unchanged - and with this the third match of three it's likely changes will be made. Deeney doesn't tend to play three times in a week - but it's a question of who comes in. Blues have a troublingly thin squad. 13:31Craig JohnsLast time hereA great Balogun goal in one of the moments he showed glimpses of the quality he obviously has during his spell here.
There was no pre-match press conference in between this one and the win at Blackburn before New Year. Before that game we learned that Anfernee Dijksteel is expected to be out for around a month with a knee injury, while Darnell Fisher is still absent as he continues his recovery from an 18-month injury.
