The pre-Christmas run of Championship fixtures continues tonight as high-flying pair Birmingham and Cardiff meet at St. Andrews, with both clubs enjoying decent seasons so far.
Both sides are enjoying strong campaigns and will head into the 22nd round of games on the periphery of the play-offs, so three points would be vital for either side.
Birmingham currently sit 8th in the table following a 1-1 draw with Preston on Tuesday. The point made it five games without a win for Blues and was secured courtesy of a Michael Morrison header from a Stephen Gleeson corner.
The goal was Morrison’s second of the season, putting him just three behind top scorer Clayton Donaldson while it was Gleeson’s third assist of the campaign.
Clayton Donaldson will once again miss out through injury, and scoring goals has been a problem for the Blues so far this season.
A win over Cardiff by two or more goals would see them leapfrog their opponents and move to within one point of 6th place Ipswich.
However they face a tough task against the Welsh side currently on a run of two wins and two draws in their last four games.
Russel Slade’s side needed a 90th minute goal from Kenwyne Jones to secure a 3-2 win over Brentford midweek.
The Bluebirds appeared to be cruising after first half goals from Jones and on-loan forward Tony Watt however they were pegged back by the Bees in the second half before former Stoke forward Jones bagged his second of the night.
With the games coming thick and fast, Slade could make some changes with the likes of Joe Mason, Peter Whittingham, Sammy Ameobi, Stuart O’Keefe and Scott Malone all starting the clash with Brentford on the bench.
Malone was the only one of the aforementioned quintet dropped making way for Fabio de Silva at the back and he will to come straight back into the side.
Birmingham meanwhile could start with Jon Toral after the midfielder replaced Andrew Shinnie at half-time at Preston, while Greg Halford will also hope to start after coming on towards the end.
A win for either side would prove a welcome three points and see either side in a great position to make a serious campaign for an automatic promotion spot.
It should be a cracker between two of the better sides in the Championship, just make sure you don’t miss a kick.
