Birmingham vs Burton
England – The Championship
Date: Monday, 17th April 2017
Kick off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: St Andrews, Birmingham.
From their last possible 60 points Birmingham have won just 13 and have just 2 wins in five months, this form means one thing- relegation. And yet the club are still in 19th place and 4 points from the bottom three. But enough is enough and they will have to find victory from somewhere.
They could only draw away to Rotherham in their last game that was Rotherham’s first point in almost two months. At home Birmingham have the fourth to worst record in the league which includes a dire recent effort of losing 4 of their last five matches and the other game was a draw. Here is a team that has forgotten how to win.
Burton are in 21st place and just two points clear of the relegation zone and so this match should be an incredibly interesting affair. Burton has just one win in their five games and away from home they have won just 3 all season.
However, their away form had vastly improved over the last few weeks. Whilst it’s true that Burton did lose their last away match against Newcastle it was only by a narrow 1-0 and was much expected they would lose at St James’ Park. But take that hard fixture out and Burton had gone 4 matches on the road unbeaten picking up 6 points in the process.
