Birmingham vs Derby Stats
- Birmingham unbeaten in their last three drawing two of these
- Derby are winless in their last seven fixtures on the road
- Rams are unbeaten on last five visits to this ground winning the last two
Birmingham stretched their unbeaten run to three and made it two successive draws with a 1-1 at Ipswich. They took an early lead through Lukas Jutkiewicz but were pegged back and could not find a further breakthrough that their performance just about merited. They are 18th and are six points above Rotherham who are 22nd and in the relegation zone.
At St Andrew’s, the Blues are unbeaten in their last two but have won just one of the previous six which came against Leeds. Games at their place have been low on goals with each of the last four and six of the last seven going under 2.5. In just one of their last six at their own place have they netted in the second-half.
Derby had a comfortable 4-0 victory at Bolton on Saturday as Mason Mount led the way with a hat-trick. It means they have lost just one of the last seven but they sit in eighth two points outside the top six. Three of their next five are on the road including a big one at promotion rivals Bristol City.
Away from Pride Park, the Rams need to find some form having failed to win any of their last three seven with four of these ending in defeat. A lack of road goals is an issue having blanked in five of their last seven on their travels. They are also shipping having conceded nine from their last three on the road.
Bookmakers are struggling to split the pair with home advantage making Birmingham marginal favourites. The draw would help the home team more than the visitors but that is how we see this ending up. Derby are struggling for goals on the road, Birmingham have blanked in three of their last six on the road when goals are at a premium then the draw is a real runner.
As well as the draw backing that and the game to go under 2.5 goals also appeals as this covers the game finishing 0-0 or 1-1.
