Match Preview

A shock 1-0 win against promotion hopefuls Leeds United gave Birmingham their first win in six Championship matches last weekend (W1, L5). That was their first 1-0 league victory at home this season, and just their seventh overall league success ‘to nil’ this campaign. That win was also the ‘Blues’ first clean sheet in ten league games.
One way or the other, games have often been one-sided in recent weeks for Gary Monk’s men, with both teams scoring in just one of their previous six league matches. However, both teams have scored in 52.5% their Championship fixtures this season.
Sheffield United leapfrogged Leeds into second place last weekend thanks to Birmingham, but they’ll be hoping they don’t suffer the same fate as they look to build on their record of four wins in their previous five league matches (W4, L1). Impressively for the ‘Blades’, all of their previous 11 league victories have been accompanied by a clean sheet.
However, the visitors haven’t won any of their last four competitive matches against Birmingham (D2, L2). Furthermore, both teams have scored in three of the previous five H2Hs.
Players to watch: Birmingham forward Che Adams ended a six-game goal drought last time out against Leeds, as he netted his 22nd Championship strike of the season.
Sheffield forward David McGoldrick scored the winner against Preston last week, and his side have won each of the last seven games he has scored in.
Stat attack: There have been 16 yellow cards across Birmingham’s previous three league matches.
Four of Sheffield’s last nine Championship games featured a red card.
Sheffield are undefeated in six away league matches (W3, D3).
Sheffield have conceded 67.57% of their league goals in the second half.
