Birmingham vs Newcastle
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.
