Match preview

Relegation-threatened Blackpool will act as hosts on Saturday afternoon, desperate to steady the ship in a Championship meeting with Birmingham City at Bloomfield Road.

As fans of the seasiders will be all too aware, Blackpool stood as perhaps the Championship’s most out of form side heading into the World Cup break.

A run of four defeats on the trot saw Michael Appleton’s men dragged not only into the thick of the battle against the drop, but within three points of the division’s basement dwellers, Huddersfield.

And even more alarming than the results themselves were the clubs against whom they were forthcoming.

Safe to say, then, that just a 7th win from 22 attempts would come as a welcome relief to all associated with Saturday’s hosts.

Such a result, though, will not prove easy to come by, up against a Birmingham side eyeing a bounce-back result of their own.

The Blues, prior to their final outing ahead of the international break, had fallen to just one defeat in eight, at the hands of promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers.

Such fine form, in turn, culminated in John Eustace’s men climbing steadily away from the bottom three, to the comforts of mid-table.

It therefore came as a blow when, in their most recent fixture, Birmingham were put to the sword in a home meeting with Sunderland.

Despite dominating when it came to both possession and chances created, goals on the part of Ellis Simms and Amad Diallo proved enough to guide Sunderland to the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.

We at 101, as a result, envision a hard-fought affair playing out over the course of the 90 minutes at Bloomfield Road this Saturday afternoon.

When all is said and done, though, we are backing visitors Birmingham to ultimately emerge with all three points.
