Birmingham vs Newcastle

Birmingham
VS
Newcastle
Newcastle United have been in a mixed bag of form in recent games but will be looking for a decent cup run in order to try and potentially win this competition considering they have done of the strongest squads in the Championship. Newcastle will look to give some of their fringe players a chance out in this game including the likes of Perez, Mitrovic, Murphy, Hanley, Yedelin. All of them will be looking to prove their worth against a Birmingham side who have been in bad form. Newcastle away form has been a bit shaky losing 3 out of the last 5 games, but are also the highest scorers in the division away from home with 22 in 13 and conceded the least goals in 7.

 

Birmingham have recently appointed Gianfranco Zola as their new manager and in 4 games, he has just managed 1 draw so far this game. While his key focus for the campaign will be to get into those playoff spots, he is sitting just 7 points behind 6th placed Sheffield Wednesday. Birmingham's biggest issue has been conceding goals, shipping 35 goals in 25 games, which have made them the bottom 3rd of the defensive tables. On the offensive end they have been a bit shaky as well, not scoring much and Jutkiewicz has been their highest scorer, netting just 8 goals so far. Zola is expected to rotate his squad with primary focus on the promotion and that might leave gaps in between for Newcastle to exploit.

 

Newcastle will be looking for the victory in this encounter, and I expect them to push on for a victory especially with a strong bench between them.
