Monday, Selhurst Park, 7.45pm, live on Sky Sports 1

SOME games cry out shortage of goals and this is one of them.

I'd like to be wrong because you want a Monday night spectacle but Palace v Brum has tightness and dourness written all over it.

Palace have drawn four in a row at home, three 0-0s and a 1-1 at Derby.

This looks another draw and you could do worse than cover both scorelines. No scorer pays 8-1 at Skybet and Stan James while 1-1 is 11-2 (various). Under 2.25 goals is 5-6 with Chandler.

Birmingham are slight favourites at 13-8 with Stan James despite a poor away record.

Palace are 2-1 with Chandler with the draw a biggest 12-5 at Ladbrokes.

Darren Ambrose will be forever remembered for his wonder goal at Man United in the Carling Cup and he is 10-1 with Hills and Paddy Power to hit the opener.

Birmingham's top scorer Chris Wood, rested for the Europa League win over Maribor last week, is 7-1 at Blue Square.

Redmond was the star of the show, setting up chances and coming close to scoring. He should keep his place and is 16-1 at Betfred to break the deadlock.

Any goal could take a while to arrive and I like Paddy Power and Stan James' 1-1 on the opener taking at last 28 minutes.
