Birmingham City Preview – Can Blues produce vital win?

Following their latest defeat in the Championship which came in the shape of a 3-0 loss at home to Bristol City, Birmingham City have parted ways with former manager, Aitor Karanka, and replaced him with former player, Lee Bowyer, for this upcoming vital clash against Reading.

Birmingham City find themselves in a real mess yet again in the second tier as they sit just one place and three points above the relegation zone as they’ve managed to win just two of their last 12 matches overall, but they’ll be hoping that the arrival of Bowyer can give them a much-needed boost.

Blues have been uncharacteristically poor at home though this season at St Andrews where they’re usually hard to beat, but an overall poor home record of 3-3-12 12/31 tells its own story and it may take a while for Bowyer’s methods to turn things around in the west midlands.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Reading Preview – Can Royals extend run?

Reading know that a struggling club with a new manager can be a dangerous beast but nevertheless, The Royals will fancy their chances of picking up all three points here as they look to consolidate their position in the play-off pack.

Reading bring a four-match unbeaten run into this midweek clash and they’ve won three of their last four matches with victories over Rotherham United, Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday, while results away from home have also been steady.

The Royals have lost just one of their last eight matches away from home and possess a reasonable away record of 7-7-4 22/18, so they should at least avoid defeat in this encounter.
