Derby County veteran Robbie Savage is ready to face former club Birmingham City in today's FA Cup.

Savage expects barracking from Brum's away fans - and admits regret over the manner of his departure from St Andrews.

He told The Sun: "Birmingham was brilliant for me. The stick? I can't wait. I know they won't be nice to me but I fancy us. I really do.

"My best times were at Birmingham. I was idolised. I wish it had ended better. It might be the last time I play against Birmingham. And Saturday's goal might be my last goal ever!

"I thought I was finished. There were times it looked like my legs had gone.

"But Nigel Clough has shown faith in me. He has been brilliant."
