The match

Norwich were one of only two sides in the top-six to win at the weekend and their narrow victory over Rotherham saw Daniel Farke’s side extend their lead at the top of the Championship to seven points. Birmingham, meanwhile, took advantage of that Norwich win by defeating Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 and climbed to safety at the expense of Rotherham. The two teams swapped place with Birmingham moving onto 31 points after 31 games but they are just two points above the relegation zone. 

Birmingham are fighting for their lives at the pit of the table and their win at the weekend ended a six-game winless run and streak of three defeats in succession. Their downfall has perhaps been their home form with each of their last five wins coming on the road. The Blues haven’t won a game at home since October and are perhaps suffering without fans in attendance. Their nine points from a possible 45 is the lowest return in the division from home games and they have only managed to score nine goals in their 15 matches at St. Andrew’s. 

As for Norwich they now look comfortable at the top of the table and really and truly should get promoted automatically with just over a quarter of the season to go. Three wins a row over Stoke, Coventry and Rotherham are perhaps all games they would have been expected to win but they made sure to get the job done where some of their rivals have failed in recent weeks. The side with the best record on the road in the league will travel to the worst hosts in the division as Norwich head to Birmingham for their 10th league win away from home. The Canaries have won nine of their 15 games on their travels and have taken 29 points from a possible 45.  

Key Statistics

  • Just 10 of Birmingham’s 31 league games have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
  • Five of Norwich’s last six away games have featured two goals or less.
  • Birmingham are winless in 11 at home and have lost nine of those matches.
  • Birmingham have lost four of their last five home games without scoring.

The bet of our experts

This should be a routine win for the visitors here but I am expecting a low-scoring game so I’m going to tip a Norwich win and under 2.5 goals. I don’t see Norwich conceding but they have been doing just enough to get by so I don’t expect Birmingham to be blown away either.
