Action from the Championship on Friday night as Birmingham City host Cardiff at St Andrews. Birmingham come into this game with just two points in their previous five games, at home the Blues have struggled of late losing three of their last four and have managed only one win in their last seven home games. The Blues are really struggling at the moment and they are falling down the Championship table and in danger of missing out on a chance at promotion if they dont right the ship soon. Goals have been a major problem for Birmingham with the team scoring just twenty six this year the least among all the teams in the top ten. With Vaughan up top there is talent here for Birmingham but thy just need more goals. Toral the young spaniard has been excellent this season making an impact with four goals from midfield. Birmingham though are only four points from a playoff place and that is a good thing considering their terrible form over the last month and a half.
Cardiff come into this game hot, they won again on Tuesday night a win that see's them move up to just three points behind Ipswich in the race for the playoffs. With Kenwyne Jones finding some form up front Cardiff now have a big man that can finish and cause all sorts of problems for opposition defenders. Jones on his day is almost unplayable and scored two good goals on Tuesday to secure the win for Cardiff. With Pilkington also chipping with goals from midfield this team definitely is moving in the right direction and has three wins in its last six games and just the one loss.
Taking both teams to score here, while Birmingham have struggled a little for goals they face a porous Cardiff defence who have conceded eight goals in their last four games. I think Birmingham can get on the scoresheet here but I think that Cardiff will win the game. For those looking for a bigger priced option you could do worse than take Cardiff to win and both teams to score.
