Birmingham City vs Middlesbrough

, KO: 19:45 Mar 12, 2024, St Andrew’s Stadium

Middlesbrough continue their push for a place in the top 10 as they travel to St Andrew's Stadium for a midweek Championship fixture with Birmingham City. Boro have shown some good form in recent weeks and should have the edge over an out of sorts Birmingham side.

Birmingham City are coming off a 1-0 defeat to Millwall in their previous Championship fixture. They attempted to put up a defensive display and held out for long periods before the hosts netted the winner on the stroke of 90 minutes.

That result extends a poor run of form for Birmingham City, who are winless in their last four matches, suffering three defeats in that run. They are also without manager Tony Mowbray who has temporarily stepped away from his duties due to illness.

Sitting just one point above the relegation zone, Birmingham City need an upturn in results, particularly at home. They have won just two of their last eight matches at St Andrew’s Stadium and were beaten 4-3 by Southampton in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Middlesbrough travel to Birmingham off the back of a 2-0 victory over QPR in their previous Championship fixture. Following a goalless first half they burst into life after the break with Emmanuel Latte Lath and Marcus Forss getting the goals.

That was the second straight victory for Middlesbrough, who have also won three of their last five matches. They are currently 11th on the standings but still have an outside chance of making the playoffs, sitting just eight points off the top six.

Middlesbrough have also caught the eye on their recent travels, winning five of their last eight Championship away matches. Among the results for Michael Carrick’s men in that run is a 2-1 victory at leaders Leicester City.
