English League Championship

Venue: St. Andrew’s.

The Birmingham City FC fans are left angry and frustrated after watching their team fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Reading last weekend. Gianfranco Zola is another frustrated figure at the Birmingham dressing room who is yet to win a match after taking over from Gary Rowett in December. The Blues are without a win in 10 league matches which saw them dropping to 12th in the league table.

As expected, Fulham had little trouble in defeating relegation candidate Burton Albion in their last round fixture. It was a quite first half but a pair of goals after the break ensure the Cottagers all three points. The win has put Fulham at a touching distance to the play-off zone. They are 9th in the table with 43 points, which is 3 less than Derby at 6th place.

Birmingham vs Fulham: Prediction

Many expect Birmingham to lose this one as they are in a terrible shape and Fulham being one of the tough sides to beat in the league. But we believe a draw is the most probable outcome here, as the return leg between these two sides in the previous two seasons have seen 1-1 draws.
