Birmingham City v Cardiff City Preview

Birmingham City head into this game currently occupying 8th position in the league table, but the hosts have failed to win any of their previous five matches played, of which they have lost three and the confidence will no doubt be lacking on Friday night.

Cardiff City head into the game a place above their hosts in 7th position of the league table and will be in confident of mood of extending their lead having won 3-2 at home against Brentford on Tuesday night, although the visitors will need to improve their away form to do so as they have only managed just two wins on the road this season from ten matches played.

Birmingham City Team News:

Birmingham striker Clayton Donaldson is still on the sidelines but the Blues could welcome back Jon Toral for this one, Paul Robinson remains a fitness doubt.

Cardiff City Team News:

Cardiff have no real injury problems for this clash with Slade considering whether or not Tony Watt gets a starting berth, while Fabio is expected to remain in defence.

Birmingham City v Cardiff City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Birmingham City are struggling at the moment as their recent form statistics clearly show having failed to win any of their last five matches played and with their home record this season also far from inspiring the hosts have it all to do here in my opinion.

Cardiff City however, head into this game on the back of a victory picked up earlier midweek and with a good record against their hosts in recent season’s they do look the more likely winners come Friday night in front of the Sky Sports Camera’s.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be Cardiff City to Win as they are the form side heading into this game and will be in confident mood having beat Brentford 3-2 last time out.

First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be Cardiff City striker Kenwyn Jones to open up the goalscoring on Friday night as with a brace in that 3-2 win against Brentford earlier in the week, his confidence will be sky high of being able to add at least another goal to his season’s tally.
