Match Preview | Birmingham City (H)

The Hatters face Birmingham City tomorrow afternoon looking to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season.


Following the midweek victory against Barnsley, Town have the opportunity to build on a promising start to the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship campaign and will aim for a third win when the Blues arrive at Kenilworth Road.

The opposition:

Birmingham were defeated for the first time this season on Wednesday night following a 2-0 loss against Bournemouth.

Prior to that match, they had kept a clean-sheet in all three of their matches, including the Carabao Cup win against Colchester United, and opening day victory versus Sheffield United.

Last time we met:

Dan Potts scored the only goal of the game when the two sides last met during a scrappy contest at St Andrew’s.

Before that meeting, the Hatters had been unsuccessful against Birmingham since 2006 when a brace from Rowan Vine and a late David Bell strike secured all three points on that occasion.
