Birmingham City vs Hull City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 17th March 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. Andrews (Birmingham).
Birmingham are looking clueless at the moment. The team has changed a lot of managers in recent times but this isn’t working also. They are in the relegation zone with struggling for point and not picking any. The Blues need some kind of a heavy lift in their spirits to be able to survive this year.
Birmingham suffered their 7th consecutive loss last round. They face in form Cardiff and before you know it they were 3-0 down. Cardiff let their performance drop towards the end giving Birmingham some chances. The Blues took them scoring twice but they could not reach for the draw.
Hull have improved in recent weeks. The team picked up several good results which lifted them a bit in the table. The Tigers are currently sitting on 17th place with a 9 points advantage over the relegation zone.
Their previous round was a game to remember. Hull were outstanding on the road against tough opponent like Ipswich. Everything went in Hull’s way this game. Henriksen gave them early lead, Wilson scored 2nd just before half time. Just minutes into the second half and Hull were up with 0-3 as Bowen netted another. This was enough for their victory and Ipswich looked stunned and could not react.

Birmingham vs Hull: Predictions
Hull are gaining confidence playing well and scoring a lot in recent weeks. Birmingham are on the opposite side of the form table. They hardly score and lose time and time again. Despite the home advantage Hull should be considered favorites here. The game should be lively with Birmingham trying to get something out of the game while Hull is in great scoring form.
