Albion's match at Birmingham tomorrow hinges on an early morning inspection.

Referee Phil Dowd and a safety chief will assess the state of the St Andrew's pitch and surrounding areas.

A statement released by Birmingham this morning said: "Club officials are working hard to ensure that tomorrow's fixture at home to Brighton & Hove Albion goes ahead despite the recent snowfall.

"The weather forecast for tomorrow is more favourable and conditions in and around St. Andrew's Stadium will be assessed in the morning.

Match official Phil Dowd and the local authority's safety inspector will be on site early tomorrow morning to make a final decision, especially given that the Seagulls' supporter coaches are due to depart Brighton at 9am."
