Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 3rd February 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Sheffield is slowly improving after the managerial change. Luhukay has stabilized the team’s defensive issues and his boys are looking a bit more aggressive under his guidance. The team is actually without a defeat under Luhukay. Still 0-0 draws are not the best result for a team like Wednesday but at least the defensive issue look to be sorted out. Luhukay so far has 2 victories in FA cup games and 3 goalless draws in the league. The team looks a bit more aggressive than it used to be but needs a lot more improvement in terms of scoring goals.
Birmingham have climbed a bit above the drop-zone but the team is nowhere near safety. They took vital 3 points against fellow relegation rivals along with a stolen point from Deepdale with a 1-1 draw. These result helped the team get out of the zone but there is a lot more to be done.
Birmingham won a vital encounter last round against Sunderland. Birmingham took a 2-0 lead in the first half. In the second they extended it to 3-0 and with some lack of concentration near the end let Sunderland get a consolidation goal. Still the final 3-1 result was more than enough for The Blues.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham: Predictions
Sheffield will want to continue their improvement. They looks table at the back but have to start finding the net. Birmingham are one of the worst visitors in the league and The Owls may have a chance to finally find the net and get all the points.
Both teams are having a lot of low scoring games struggling to find the net. We can be fairly confident that they will continue this tendency on Saturday.
