Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers have quite different priorities at the moment. Birmingham is in constant takeover talks, trying to avoid a relegation scrap in the Championship.

This is while Blackburn is bidding to remain in the promotion hunt in that division. Nevertheless, that did not prevent the sides from putting on an entertaining spectacle at Ewood Park at the weekend.

The tie swung back and forth throughout the 90 minutes and ended with Birmingham getting a share of the spoils after Jordan James scored in added time.

Despite occupying fifth place in the Championship, Blackburn Rovers are underdogs to retain a top-six spot unless they find the consistency lacking since the start of the season.

Birmingham City travelled to the North-West having posted five successive defeats in the second tier, their only victory since December 16 coming at Forest Green Rovers in the third round of the FA Cup.

Although they have an extra game on their schedule, manager John Eustace will feel that James’s late goal could help his team build some momentum going forward.

Birmingham City Team News

With a draw at Ewood Park, Eustace may look to change his team ahead of the trip to Ashton Gate. Hannibal Mejbri and Juninho Bacuna are in contention for midfield places, while Scott Hogan could start ahead of Lukas Jutkiewicz up front. The defence should stay the same, though, with Eustace looking to build stability in that area.

Tomasson could use the same formation he used in the previous match, with Sammie Szmodics replacing Bradley Dack in the role behind the striker. Jack Vale may come in for Sam Gallagher in that role, while Lewis Travis is an alternative in central midfield.
