Birmingham City vs Bristol City prediction, preview, squad news and more

Seeking to secure three trotting wins in the EFL Championship, Birmingham City will host Bristol City at St Andrew’s Stadium on Tuesday.

The visitors, meanwhile, are heading into the game after ending their three-game losing streak and will be looking to roll the juggernaut.

Birmingham City continued in their resurgent form by clinching a 2-0 victory at Middlesbrough last Saturday.

It followed a 2-1 win over Swansea City, where Troy Deeney and Riley McGree scored either side of Michael Obafemi’s equalizer in the 77th minute to end the Swans’ two-game winning streak.

After a slow start to the season, Birmingham City have seen a turnaround in recent weeks and are currently 14th in the EFL Championship standings, having collected 19 points in 15 games.

Meanwhile, Bristol City found their way back to victory last time around with a hard-won 2-1 win over Barnsley at home.

Before that, Nigel Pearson’s men hadn’t tasted victory in each of their last three games, suffering back-to-back losses to Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest and West Brom.

Bristol City are currently tied on points with Tuesday’s hosts and will look to build on that performance and move up to the top half of the table.
