Swansea may have received many plaudits for their style of play in the early stages of Russell Martin‘s tenure, but the results were rather underwhelming.
After winning just one of their opening eight games, though, the Welsh side have since collected 10 points from the last 15 on offer to move within four points of the playoffs.
Last weekend’s 3-0 win over bitter rivals Cardiff City may well prove to be an early turning point in Swansea’s season, having followed that up with an impressive win in midweek.
City recovered from a first-minute setback against automatic promotion-chasing West Bromwich Albion thanks to goals from Joel Piroe and Jamie Paterson at the Liberty Stadium.
Ryan Bennett managed to play a full part despite picking up a knock against the Bluebirds, while Olivier Ntcham again had to settle for an appearance from the substitutes’ bench.
With this the third game in a week, Martin may be tempted to freshen things up, but at the same time he will be a little reluctant to tweak a winning formula.
Paterson seems certain to start up top, having been involved in eight goals in his last six league games (four goals and four assists).
Likewise, Birmingham will surely make a change on the back of their last match, even if a draw at Huddersfield can be considered a positive point.
Riley McGree and Jordan Graham were handed their first starts of the season in midweek and will be hopeful of retaining their places in the XI on Saturday.

Troy Deeney has mainly had to settle for a back-up role but, on the back of another goalless game for his side, this could be a good chance to get him involved from the beginning.

Sarkic; Sanderson, Roberts, Friend; Graham, Gardner, McGree, Sunjic, Pedersen; Chong, Deeney
Swansea City possible starting lineup:
Hamer; Bennett, Naughton, Cabango; Laird, Smith, Grimes, Bidwell; Ntcham, Paterson; Piroe
