On the final weekend of the EFL Championship season, Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham City and Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers meet at St Andrew’s. These two clubs have had disappointing campaigns in the end. The Blues will finish near the bottom, while Rovers’ poor form in 2022 has cost them a place in the play-offs. With that said, both will want to end the 2021-22 Championship season with three points. Read on for the latest odds and tips.

Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues end with a home win?

Birmingham City have had another pretty miserable season in the Championship. The Blues finished in 18th last term and will finish even lower this time around. If Cardiff City do not lose, not even three points for Birmingham will be enough to take 19th.

Birmingham have lost 20 of their 45 league matches, winning 11 and drawing 14 of the other 25. They have been in poor form of late, winning just one of the last nine. Since a 1-0 home win over West Bromwich Albion, City have lost three and drawn two.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1105 GMT, Friday 6 May)

Birmingham must rebuild and go again next season – can they finish this campaign with a win in front of their own supporters? The bookies are offering 9/5 for a home success.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will Mowbray’s men leave the Midlands with all three points?

Blackburn Rovers were looking like top-two contenders at the end of last year, but their form in 2022 has been nowhere near good enough. Since the turn of the year, Tony Mowbray’s boys have mustered up just five Championship wins.

The Blue and Whites were still in with a shout of a play-off berth when they thumped Preston North End 4-1 at Deepdale on 25th April. However, their slim hopes were ended with a 3-0 home reverse to Bournemouth last Saturday.

Nevertheless, this season was a big step in the right direction for Rovers, who were playing EFL League One football not so long ago. Mowbray’s men can still finish in eighth position.
