While the hosts were dragged closer to an unlikely relegation battle following a defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, Blackburn beat Stoke City at Ewood Park.

Birmingham extended their losing run across all competitions to three matches on Friday following a 2-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday.

Despite registering over 55 shots during matches against Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield Wednesday, Blues have been unable to score, with the likes of Scott Hogan and Juninho Bacuma spurning decent chances to end their side’s struggles in front of goal last time out.

Partly due to Queens Park Rangers collecting eight points from their last four Championship matches, Tony Mowbray’s side are slowly being dragged into a battle at the bottom of the second-tier, with the club currently 19th, just three points above Marti Cifuentes’ side in the relegation zone.

Losing 11 of their 16 Championship away matches, Birmingham are being kept afloat in the second tier by a decent record at St Andrew’s Park, with Blues picking up 21 points from 14 home games in the league, losing on just three occasions.

Meanwhile, Balckburn ended their eight-game losing run in the Championship with the help of interim manager Damien Johnson on Saturday at Ewood park, beating fellow strugglers Stoke City 3-1.

With Birmingham sitting in sixth position on October 6, Tuesday’s hosts decided to sack Eustace allowing Wayne Rooney’s ill-fated spell at Blues to commence, and after four months of numerous links to vacant jobs in the Championship, the 44-year-old has found a new managerial home at Ewood Park.

Following a first league victory since the middle of December last time out, Blackburn have moved up to 17th in the Championship standings, sitting seven points ahead of 22nd-placed QPR, who have played a game more than Rovers.

Birmingham City Team News

After starting in the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on the bench due to fatigue, Jay Stansfield is expected to return to the Birmingham XI on Tuesday.

Neil Etheridge will continue in goal due to the injury of John Ruddy, who joins Dion Sanderson, Alfie Chang and George Hall on a list of absentees.

Blackburn Rovers Team News

Blackburn are set to be without the services of Harry Pickering until early March due to a hamstring strain, with the defender missing his team’s last three matches.

Eustace’s options at the back are restricted further by the absence of Hayden Carter, who is also occupying a place in the treatment room due to a hamstring issue.
