Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues secure a rare home win?

Birmingham City have had a mixed start to their season. They have mustered up just five league wins, but the Blues have pulled off some excellent results of late. Nevertheless, City find themselves languishing down in 17th with 19 games now played.

Since a hard-fought 2-1 home victory over Huddersfield Town in October, Birmingham have failed to win any of their following five at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, taking just one point from a possible 15.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1110 GMT, Friday 18 December)

After two eye-catching away wins at Bristol City and Reading in the space a few days, City have gone on to lose their last two. Before the midweek reverse at the Cardiff City Stadium, Aitor Karanka’s troops were beaten 1-0 at home by Watford last weekend.

As they look nervously over their shoulder at the drop zone, Birmingham could certainly do with a home win sooner rather than later. Can the Midlands outfit seal a massive three points on their own patch this weekend?

Middlesbrough Preview – Boro to make it three wins in a row?

Since taking over at the Riverside Stadium, the experienced Neil Warnock has made Middlesbrough hard to beat. Boro have lost just five Championship games this term, with only five clubs losing fewer.

After suffering back-to-back away losses to Stoke City and Preston North End, Middlesbrough have hit back with two much-needed home victories in the past week. Boro thumped Millwall 3-0 last Saturday before battling to a 1-0 victory over Luton Town in midweek.
