Birmingham City vs Hull City

, KO: 19:45 Jan 16, 2024, St Andrew’s Stadium
Hull City

Having battled to a 1-1 draw in the first meeting, Birmingham City and Hull City Square up in an FA Cup third round replay on Tuesday. Performances are slowly improving for Birmingham and with Hull looking off colour lately, they will be confident of claiming the upper hand.

Birmingham City will be disappointed not to have seen out the win in the first meeting. They held onto Lukas Jutkiewicz’s first half opener for long periods before conceding the equaliser three minutes from time.

While Birmingham City are still looking for their first win under manager Tony Mowbray, there have been signs of improvement in recent weeks. They showed great character to come from behind twice and earn a 2-2 draw with Swansea City in a Championship fixture last Saturday.

Having drawn their last two matches, Birmingham City will feel they are due a win and the FA Cup can be a spark for their resurgence. However, beyond the search for their first win under the new manager, one thing that remains concerning is their leaky defence that has kept just one clean sheet in the last seven matches.

While an FA Cup replay is not ideal in a packed fixture schedule, Hull City will be pleased to have avoided defeat in the first meeting. They trailed for much of the encounter before Matty Jacob netted a dramatic late equaliser.

Although it was not a defeat, the result is in keeping with Hull City’s recent form as they have picked up just one win from their last six matches across all competitions. They have lost four times in that run and were beaten 2-1 at home by Norwich City in the Championship last weekend.

Among the problems for Hull City this season is a poor record on their travels having picked up just one win from their last six away matches. Liam Rosenior’s men have lost three of the last four fixtures in that run.
