Birmingham v Norwich betting preview
Birmingham were lucky to stave off the drop last seasonBirmingham, who escaped relegation after managerial changes and lots of turbulence last year, come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Brighton last time out. That result means that Gary Monk’s men extended a seven-match unbeaten streak at St. Andrew's Stadium. The Blues have only been able to add one player to their squad, full-back Kristian Pedersen from Union Berlin, because of the transfer embargo. Anyway, this embargo has been lifted and they are free to sign up to five players before Thursday's deadline day.
Garry Monk will be playing with most of the players who featured back in March for this fixture. Whether he starts with David Stockdale in goal is another matter, with the two not seeing eye-to-eye and the goalkeeper has been told by Monk he can leave the club. Midfielder David Davis and attacker Isaac Vassell are the only long-term injury problems for the hosts. They possess plenty of attacking talent with the likes of Jota, Lukas Jutkiewicz and Che Adams posing their biggest threat to the Canaries.
Daniel Farke looks to steer Norwich towards the top sixNorwich managed to win just one of their last four matches (beating Luton Town 1-3), with losses to Union Berlin (2-1) and Charlton Athletic (1-0) as well as a 1-1 draw against Wolfsburg. Head coach Daniel Farke looks to improve on a 14th-place finish from his first Championship season in charge, with a new-look squad including Tim Krul, Jordan Rhodes and Teemu Pukki. In terms of direct encounters, Canaries have bagged wins in all of the sides’ last three head-to-head clashes
The departures of James Maddison and Josh Murphy will hit the East Anglian club for sure. Former Celtic striker Teemu Pukki will lead the line while the likes of Emiliano Buendia, Onel Hernandez and Ben Marshall will play as offensive midfielders. Jordan Rhodes is expected to shrug off an ankle knock he suffered against Luton last month and could make the bench. Moritz Leitner and Tom Trybull will anchor the midfield, with Felix Passlack, Grant Hanley, Timm Klose and Ivo Pinto likely to form the four man backline. Russell Martin is back from his loan with Rangers but will not feature after being sent to train with the youth squad.
