Birmingham haven’t won a game since 10th September which was a 2-0 home victory versus Derby County. Since then, the Blues have suffered some heavy defeats, losing 4-1 and 3-0 to Fulham and Peterborough, before drawing 0-0 against Preston North End, and then losing 2-0 and 3-0 to QPR and Nottingham Forest.

The Brewers come into this game in 10th place having scored 11 and conceded 14 goals in 12 league matches, with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men winning just one of their last five, which came via a 2-1 scoreline at home to Portsmouth late last month, thanks to goals by Tom O’Connor and Daniel Jebbison.
