Match preview

Two sides in the midst of alarming recent spells of form are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at St. Andrew’s on Saturday, January 21st.

The matchup in question will see Birmingham City act as hosts, in a meeting with Preston North End.

Let’s first take a look at the recent struggles of the former.

Dating back to the end of last month, Birmingham have fallen to defeat in each of the club’s last four league fixtures.

The most recent came in alarming fashion, too, as the Blues shipped four goals to relegation-threatened Bristol City, en route to being leapfrogged by the Robins in the standings in England’s 2nd tier.

John Eustace’s troops, in turn, have slipped to a lowly 18 in the table, just six points clear of the drop zone.

Birmingham’s upcoming opponents, though, in truth, have not fared all that much better over recent weeks.

After previously looking like candidates for a promotion playoff berth, Preston have fallen victim to an alarming dip in form of late.

All told, four of the Lilywhites’ last five league outings have culminated in defeat, the most recent of which came by way of a four-goal drubbing at the hands of a stuttering Norwich City side.

Ryan Lowe’s men, as a result, find themselves sitting in the bottom half of the Championship table.

Not only that, but, should they slip to yet another loss this weekend, then Birmingham - widely considered as being on the edge of the relegation scrap - will close to within two points of Lowe and co.

We at 101, however, view such an outcome as altogether unlikely, instead backing either a sharing of the spoils, or Preston victory come the final whistle at St. Andrew’s.
