Tip Reasoning

  • Blackburn have scored nine consecutive Championship goals without reply.
  • Birmingham won just one of their last nine away games.
  • Birmingham failed to score in six of their last eight away games.

Buoyant Blackburn to carry on strong form

If someone would have told you that Blackburn would win five of their next six games following that record-breaking 7-0 defeat against Fulham in November, you may have said they were raving mad!

However, Tony Mowbray’s men have done just that and in good style to boot. The hosts have now won each of their last four league games without conceding a goal and it is hard to see past another strong showing from the joint-highest Championship scorers at home (2.2 goals per-match).

Contributing to those goals in a huge way is Ben Brereton Diaz – Chile’s best ever Stoke-born player has now scored as many Championship goals (17) in one season as he did in five prior seasons at this level prior to his name change. As such it would take a brave man to back against him scoring here.

Birmingham’s away woes to worsen

Currently eight points adrift of the play-off picture, Birmingham need to start a huge run if they are to retain any hope of making a late dash for a top-six place come the end of the busy festive schedule. However, their return of just 22 league goals, in comparison to Blackburn’s 24 just in home games, leaves you wondering if they will cut it here.

All in all, I predict that the hosts will be too good for this lukewarm Birmingham attack, the visitors conceded five times across their last three away games and they have a real job on their hands keeping Brereton Diaz from scoring. As such, I predict a comfortable 2-0 home victory in this game.
