For our Birmingham vs. Blackburn prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the away side.
Blackburn Rovers continue their hunt for a play-off spot as they face Birmingham City this weekend.
Birmingham City currently sit 17th in the Championship with twelve wins, nine draws and seventeen losses from thirty-eight games this season.
The Blues have had a very successful campaign this time around having been tipped as the relegation favourite by most coming into this season off the back of a tumultuous summer off-field, but with eight games remaining they find themselves well placed to avoid the drop.
They enter this game amidst a decent run of form having won two, drawn one and lost one of their last four matches, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win away at Queens Park Rangers.
Their form at home has been okay of late having won two and lost two of their last four matches at St. Andrew's, so they can be fairly confident ahead of this one.
Birmingham are nine points clear of the relegation zone with eight games left to play and should see out the campaign without entering the bottom three from here. It's not guaranteed, but a couple more wins at most will do the job but they face a tough test here against a solid side.
Blackburn Rovers currently sit 5th in the Championship with nineteen wins, four draws and fourteen losses from thirty-seven games this season.
Rovers have had an excellent campaign this season with few expecting them to be anywhere near a play-off spot coming into the season, but with nine games left to play a play-off berth is in their own hands.
They enter this game amidst a decent run of form having won three and lost two of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 3-2 defeat away at Sheffield United in the FA Cup quarterfinal.
The loss occurred in a heartbreaking manner with Rovers 2-1 up in the 80th minute, only to lose 3-2 courtesy of an injury-time screamer from Tommy Doyle.
Rovers now have a big job trying to dust themselves off after such a painful defeat and pursue their goal of a top six finish.
Their form away from home has been fairly average having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches on the road but having already beaten Birmingham at St. Andrew's this season, a 1-0 win in the FA Cup at the end of January, they can be confident of claiming three points here.
