West Brom have lost quite some ground in the quest for an automatic promotion place’ they are seven places off second spot and with just two wins in the last five Championship matches, they are the side with the poorest form in the top four. Their form cannot however be compared to Birmingham City’s. The visiting side in this clash has lost each of the last four Championship matches. West Brom are the second best scorers in the Championship, with 72 goals, which is 19 goals better than Birmingham. Being just five points above the relegation zone, Birmingham will also look at this game with a lot of importance. Defensively, there is little to separate the teams; while Birmingham have conceded 49 goals, West Brom have let in 48. Birmingham have actually scored no goal in their last four matches and they will be keen to change this aspect as well. West Brom are on two straight clean sheets and are unbeaten in the last three. West Brom have one win in the last seven home matches, which was picked in the last game before the international break. On the other hand, Birmingham have lost the last two away matches ahead of this and have no clean sheet in the last eight away matches. West Brom are unbeaten in five matches against Birmingham and three of the last four meetings have seen the teams produce over 2.5 goals. West Brom have an edge over Birmingham with 38 wins over Birmingham’s 31, in a run of 96 matches.
