The young Blues host Birmingham City at Southport's Haig Avenue, looking to bounce back from a frustrating 2-1 defeat to Southampton in their opening game of the competition last time out.

Prior to that, Paul Tait's free-scoring side had been in fine form with five wins from their previous seven matches, netting 24 goals during that run.
