With their previous win, Birmingham will be aiming for the streak to continue. But they will be aware that facing Cardiff will not be as easy as facing Luton at the ultimate bottom of the table.
Also, Cardiff has a 6 points lead over Birmingham in the table. Besides that, Birmingham has lost three of its last five league clashes.
Meanwhile, Cardiff has managed to at least stay unbeaten in four of its past five matches in the campaign. Even at home, Birmingham has disappointed lately with losing their last four home matches in a row.
Despite having the home ground advantage, Birmingham has won only five of their 13 attempts at home this Championship season.
Cardiff, on the other hand, is also struggling on the road with six losses in 14 away games so far. However, their losses mostly have come against the top part teams in the table.
Thus, giving a small chance for Cardiff to get something out of this match.
As such, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash. Since Cardiff is better in terms of overall league performance, it is better to favor them in the clash.
