West Brom vs Birmingham Match Preview
West Brom continued their recent drop in form as they made it two without a league victory with a goalless draw at Swansea. That result combined with a victory for Leeds means they sit second one point behind United and six above Fulham in third.
At the Hawthorns, the Baggies have struggled of late with just two league victories coming in their last eight at this ground. Just one of the last eight league matches played in front of their own fans has gone over 2.5 goals.
Birmingham saw their ten-game unbeaten Championship run come to an end at the weekend suffering a 3-1 home loss to Reading. It means the Second City outfit are five without a victory with the four prior finishing all-square.
Away from St Andrew’s, the Blues are tough to beat and have not lost any of their last seven with four of these ending in a draw including the last two. Scott Hogan has four goals in his last four appearances on the road.
Bookmakers make the home side strong favourites to win the game but the price looks too short on a side who have won just two of their last eight here. At the prices the visitors look worth taking along with the draw in the double chance market given they have not lost any of their last seven on the road which includes trips to Blackburn and Bristol City.
If Birmingham are to take something from this game they will likely have to get on the scoresheet against a West Brom defence that has kept just two home clean sheets this season. Scott Hogan has four in his last four on the road including a brace last time out and looks anytime scorer value.
