Birmingham City v West Ham: Latest Carling Cup team news

Birmingham will be without on-loan winger David Bentley for tomorrow evening's Carling Cup semi-final second leg clash with West Ham at St. Andrew's.

Bentley is ineligible as he has already played in the competition for his parent club, Tottenham, this season.

Sebastian Larsson is set to replace Bentley as City look to overturn a 2-1 first leg deficit.

Blues boss Alex McLeish has no fresh injury concerns with James McFadden (knee) and Scott Dann (hamstring) long-term casualties.

Team (from): Foster, Carr, Johnson, Ridgewell, Murphy, Larsson, Ferguson, Mutch, Fahey, Hleb, Derbyshire, Taylor, Jerome, Gardner, Bowyer, Zigic, Jiranek, Phillips, Parnaby, Beausejour.
