Swansea City vs Birmingham City match preview

Two sides to have closed out the 2022/23 Championship campaign in vastly contrasting spells of form are set to lock horns as part of the new season’s opening round of fixtures, this weekend.

The matchup in question will see Swansea City act as hosts, in a meeting with Birmingham City at the Stadium.

Beginning with the former, Swansea, of course, will be hopeful of carrying what proved a scintillating stretch of results late last season into the coming weeks.

After bizarrely going from promotion playoff contenders to relegation battlers, the Welsh giants soared back up the table courtesy of a head-turning seven wins and two draws from nine.

Such hopes, though, will be heavily dependent on just how well new boss Michael Duff settles into things.

Turning attentions towards summer arrivals, that of Blackpool standout Jerry Yates could prove itself an important one, albeit with the rest of Swansea’s business having perhaps left something to be desired.

All told, seven new bodies have made their way to St. Andrew’s, including all of Tyler Roberts, Krystian Bielik, Ethan Laird, Dion Sanderson, and Lee Buchanan.

After seeing a push towards the heights of mid-table brought to a firm end courtesy of just one win in seven to close out last season, such reinforcements should inspire confidence of better things to come on the part of John Eustace and co.

So, just how do we at 101 envision things unfolding in southwest Wales this weekend?

Though Birmingham should be looking at an improvement over the course of the campaign as a whole, we still feel as though the quality on show across Swansea’s squad should prove enough to see the hosts to a narrow victory on Saturday afternoon.
