Town continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign at St Andrew’s, taking on Birmingham City on Saturday 26 February at 3pm.

Town arrive at St Andrew’s after an incredible 2-1 win at home against Cardiff City on Wednesday 23 February 2022, with Josh Koroma and Jon Russell both scoring in the dying minutes to extend our unbeaten run in all competitions to 16 games.

Birmingham City come into the game having lost away from home to Reading 2-1 on Tuesday night.

THE OPPOSITION

Birmingham City currently occupy the 18th spot of the Championship table having taken 37 points from 34 games.

Lee Bowyer was appointed as manager of the Blues in March 2021 on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Bowyer kept Birmingham City in the Championship last season when they finished 18th, and he will be looking to push on into mid-table this season.

After the reverse fixture finishing in a 0-0 draw, both sides will be hoping to learn from that match and come away with all three points on Saturday.
