The Welsh club are now managed by Luke Williams after he left his role at League Two side Notts County last week to succeed Michael Duff.

Their visit to Birmingham is Williams' first Championship match in charge. And the same goes for former Sunderland boss Tony Mowbray, who replaced Wayne Rooney on Monday.
