Adams wants Brum scalps.

WOLVERHAMPTON boss Peter Adams says home and away wins over rivals Birmingham this week would put them back on track for a play-off challenge.

The Monmore men are slightly behind schedule in the race for a top four place and both sides meet at Wolves tomorrow with the return fixture at Perry Barr on Thursday.

Adams is hoping to see his side continue the positives they showed in last Monday's derby win over Coventry.

He said: "Birmingham are a dangerous side because they have so much strength in depth.

"But I would like to see us pick up three points at Monmore on Monday and then go to Birmingham and repeat that. I've said before that we're slightly behind schedule when it comes to qualifying for the top four playoffs so we need some points. "They will come feeling they have a chance but we have to be looking to repeat what we did in the challenge matches in March when we won home and away. The same again would do very nicely.

CHANGES: Graham Drury "Hopefully the reserves can continue the form they have shown against Coventry because they can prove to be the difference. I also felt Ludvig Lindgren deserved more points than he got against Coventry but that's the way the sport can go sometimes."

Birmingham boss Graham Drury has revealed Krzysztof Kasprzak is unavailable for Thursday because of an international fixture and he has wasted no time in booking Eddie Kennett from Coventry as a guest.

He said: "Eddie has been in great form this season and we are delighted to welcome him into the side for the night."
