Nottingham Forest take on Birmingham City on Sunday, and due to Christmas deadlines I’m writing this preview before either side play their Boxing Day fixtures against Middlesbrough and Derby County respectively.
After starting the season in top form, Stuart Pearce’s side have been in indifferent form recently, and are without a win in four games. Nonetheless, they remain within touching distance of the top six.
They sit seven points behind Watford at this stage, and are in ninth place. They’ve draw their last three games, and have 31 points from 22 games.
Birmingham, under new manager Gary Rowett, have flown up the table in recent months – winning four of their last five games, and losing just one in eight since an 8-0 thrashing by AFC Bournemouth in late October.
Ironically that came against former manager Lee Clark, now in charge at bottom of the table Blackpool. Nonetheless, Birmingham remain 15th, three points behind Forest and nine clear of the bottom three.
