U21s travel to Bolton

Viv Solomon-Otabor (pictured) has not been included. He has been handed a First Team squad number - 17 - with a view to participation in Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie at home to Gillingham.

The winger has been one of the U21s most dangerous players so far this season. Reece Brown has also been held back from travelling.

Alex Jones will lead the attack for Blues this evening and there should be another run out for trialist centre-half Emmanuel Mbende.

Charlee Adams will continue his comeback from injury.

Beryly Lubala and David Popa have been called up due to good starts to the  campaign for the Under-18s, who are unbeaten.

Blues (from): Weaver, Trueman, Cogley, Seddon, Mbende, Harding, Adams, Baba, McDonald, Truslove, O'Neill, Jones, McFarlane, Martin, Lubala, Popa.
