Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Birmingham City
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 15 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolverhampton Wanderers have a chance to secure the promotion into the elite class three games before the end of the season with a win over Birmingham City on Sunday. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men will have a nice opportunity to complete a perfect week after clinching back-to-back clean sheet wins over the likes of Cardiff City and Derby County.
It was indeed a one-way street for the Wolves back on Wednesday when they cruised past the Rams netting goals at the start of each half. Diogo Jota and Ruben Neves were on target, making it five wins and a draw in last six league affairs for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Sunday’s rivals will come into the match in a completely opposite mood. The Blues fell 3-1 away at Bristol City on Tuesday evening to stay only three points above the drop zone line. Gary Monk and his men will thus still have to work hard in border to save the Championship status. Molineux is definitely not the kind of place you look for the salvation points at, particularly after the team showed plenty of defensive holes in the aforementioned loss to Bristol City ion mid-week’s fixture.
