Birmingham City vs Norwich City

, KO: 12:30 May 4, 2024, St Andrew’s Stadium
Norwich City

Birmingham City welcome Norwich City to St Andrew’s Stadium for their Championship season finale on Saturday as they look to secure survival. Both teams have been plagued by too many draws lately and another stalemate could be on the cards here.

Sitting deep in relegation trouble, Birmingham City head into the season finale in desperate need of a miracle. They are currently one point from safety with an inferior goal difference and will need results elsewhere to go their way.

While Birmingham City are banking on results from elsewhere, they will need to hold up their own end, although their recent record does not inspire much confidence. They have won just two of their last 13 matches, drawing the last two, including a 1-1 scoreline at Huddersfield Town in their previous fixture.

Although Birmingham City have been generally erratic at home, they have picked up some positive results in recent weeks. Gary Rowett’s men have won two of their last three home matches, claiming a 3-0 victory over Coventry City in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Norwich City are still gunning for a playoff spot as they sit three points clear of Hull City, who are just outside the top six. They travel to Birmingham needing just one point to secure a playoff spot.

The Canaries have been decent lately, having lost just once in their last nine Championship matches. However, three of the last four fixtures in that run have ended in draws, including a 2-2 scoreline with Swansea City last time out.

Norwich City have also been a bit erratic on their travels with two wins and three draws from their last seven away matches. However, Danny Wagner’s men claimed a 1-0 victory at Preston North End in their previous fixture on the road.
