Match preview

Birmingham City will act as hosts on Wednesday, October 19th, as high-flying Burnley prepare to make the trip to St. Andrew’s for a Championship clash.

Starting with the former, Birmingham have enjoyed a timely upturn in form over the course of the last week.

After being sucked into the thick of the relegation battle owing to a concerning stretch of results, including a 1-0 defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers Middlesbrough, John Eustace’s troops have recovered in a major way.

After on-loan Arsenal man Aaron Trusty proved the star of the show en route to a 3-0 drubbing of Bristol City, the Blues made the trip to Hull last time out.

And, despite securing less than a third of the possession over the course of the 90 minutes, Birmingham ultimately emerged triumphant once more, owing to another clean sheet, and goals from Troy Deeney and Juninho Bacuna.

Such endeavours, in turn, have seen Hudson and co. climb a full six points clear of the drop zone, to the comforts of mid-table.

Wednesday’s hosts, though, will certainly have their work cut out for them in attempting to make it a trio of wins on the bounce.

This comes with upcoming opponents Burnley having themselves long represented one of the Championship’s most in-form clubs.

This past weekend, the Clarets made short work of playoff hopefuls Swansea City, racking up four goals without reply at Turf Moor.

Jay Rodriguez’s double, meanwhile, saw the hitman take his season tally to seven, just one shy of top spot in the top scorers’ chart.

This marked a 2nd successive victory for Vincent Kompany’s men, meaning they have not tasted defeat in a league outing since all the way back in mid-August.

Not only that, but Burnley too entered the latest midweek round of fixtures sitting pretty atop the Championship, eyeing a swift return to the top-flight of English football.

The safe bet for Wednesday night, as a result, comes in the form of a Burnley victory at St. Andrew’s.

Birmingham, looking a vastly improved side of late, though, should not be ruled out completely, with an eventual sharing of the spoils too potentially worth a punt.
