Birmingham City will act as hosts on Saturday, November 12th, when Sunderland make the trip to St. Andrews for a Championship showdown.
The Blues, of late, have enjoyed a steady climb up the table in England’s 2nd tier.
After looking like candidates for the drop over the early weeks of the campaign, John Eustace’s troops have since turned things around in altogether impressive fashion over the last couple of months.
All told, Birmingham have been condemned to defeat in just two of their last 13 outings.
A hard-fought share of the spoils secured in midweek, meanwhile, made it two wins and two draws from the club’s last four, dating back to late October.
This came owing to a last-gasp Troy Deeney equaliser adding to Scott Hogan’s early opener, en route to a 2-2 stalemate with Swansea City.
John Eustace and co, as a result, have climbed into the top half of the table, with sights set firmly on the battle for a promotion playoff berth.
Upcoming opponents Sunderland, on the other hand, remain firmly entrenched in the battle against the drop.
The Black Cats, after looking as though they had turned a corner courtesy of four points from an available six heading into November, were brought firmly back down to earth last time out.
A meeting with fellow strugglers Cardiff City at the Stadium of Light saw Tony Mowbray’s men provided with the perfect opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three.
When all was said and done in England’s northeast, though, a solitary Mark Harris effort early in the 2nd-half proved enough to guide Cardiff to the right side of the eventual result.
Sunderland, in turn, have slipped back down to 17th, just four points clear of West Bromwich Albion and the bottom three.
And we at 101 do not envision the Black Cats’ situation improving all too much on Saturday afternoon, either.
Instead, a Birmingham City victory come the full-time whistle at St. Andrew’s looks a safe bet, with Scott Hogan - now joint-top of the goalscoring charts in the Championship - also worth a punt as an anytime goalscorer.
