Birmingham – Derby County
The Championship returns to action on Friday as Birmigham play host to Derby County at St Andrew’s Stadium. The hosts played out a 1-1 draw against Barnsley last time out, while Derby County were held to a stalemate by Nottingham Forest.
With eight wins from five outings, Birmingham City are currently eighth in the EFL Championship table, two points and eight places above Friday’s visitors. Derby County’s poor start to the season continued last time out as they played out a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest.
With 49 wins from their previous 126 meetings, Derby County have been the slightly superior side in the history of this fixture. Birmingham City have picked up eight fewer wins, while 36 games have ended in draws.
With just two points separating the two sides in the table, this game has all the makings of a proper contest and we expect a riveting encounter on Friday. We predict the spoils will be shared as they head into the game in similar form.
This match will be played on 10/09/2021 at 22:00.
