New Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett takes charge of Blues for the first time in the West Midlands derby with Wolves at Molineux on Saturday lunchtime (12:15 GMT) - at a time when the two teams seem worlds apart.
Kenny Jackett's Wolves are level on points with Championship leaders Derby County - and even a draw will take them top.
Rowett's Birmingham City are in the bottom three, seemingly paralysed by their off-field problems - and reeling from a record home defeat.
But Rowett, installed on Monday as City's 24th manager since the Second World War, has already made a signing, loan defender Michael Morrison from Charlton.
BBC Midlands Today's Dan Pallett previews the game.
