Birmingham City vs. Derby County Match Analysis and Prediction

The battle to avoid league one is becoming a nightmare for Birmingham City on the final day of the Championship. The side will be put to the test as they play host at St.Andrew’s to side Derby County. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 9:30 pm.

The Blues have failed to register a win in their last 13 matches and remain two points above the relegation dropzone. Derby County also let go of their chance for contention for a top-six finish with a series of losses.

A poor season campaign for Birmingham City saw manager Pep Clotet let go of his role as the head coach. The impact of the situation could also get worse for the side on the final day of the championship.

City lost four of their last five matches following a 2-0 loss to Preston North. The side is currently praying the table stays the same on the final day. There is a chance for the eight teams in the rankings to be relegated on the final day.

Derby County fell victim to 3-1 loss to newly-promoted side Leeds United. The loss tainted the hopes of the side for a top-six finish and possibly playoffs. The Rams have only one away clean sheet in their entire season.
