Birmingham vs Stoke Match Preview
Birmingham continued their mixed start to the season with a 3-0 road loss at Swansea last weekend that gives them two wins, one draw and two defeats from their first five. They were not in League Cup action in midweek having been defeated in the previous round by Portsmouth.
At St Andrew’s, the Blues have taken four points from their opening two fixtures beating Barnsley and drawing with Bristol City. If you extend into the end of last season it is six without defeat at their own place for the Midlands outfit.
Stoke suffered a second successive league defeat and are third without victory last time out going down 3-0 to Leeds. They did though draw 2-2 with the same side in the League Cup in midweek and will be hoping to build on that in the league.
Away from the BET365 Stadium, the Potters have lost both this season in the Championship going down 3-1 at both Preston and Charlton. They have not won on the road in the league since April and that was their only success in 2019.
We are not convinced that Birmingham are as strong as their league position suggests but they should not be outsiders at home to a poor Stoke outfit. The Blues are a limited outfit who seem to all be at least behind Pep Clotet while it is not clear this is the case with the Potters and Nathan Jones. Backing the home side in the draw no bet market looks the sensible call while Lukas Jutkiewicz has netted in both home fixtures and looks anytime scorer value.
