The two Championship teams played out a 2-2 draw on Saturday, Blues scoring a late equaliser to end a poor run of results since the turn of the year.

Birmingham held an early advantage before finding themselves 2-1 behind by 46 minutes, but a 90th-minute Jordan James equaliser earned Blues a share of the spoils.

From Blackburn Rovers’ perspective, it was their second draw in succession after going 27 matches in the Championship without posting a single stalemate.

Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side have now gone three matches without a victory, only succeeding twice in their eight most recent games across all competitions.

Despite occupying fifth place in the Championship, Blackburn are underdogs to retain a top-six place in the long term unless they find the consistency that has been lacking since the start of the season.

Blues 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 this competition.

While they are six points above the bottom three, they are currently the worst performing team in the division and have played a game more that two of the sides below them.

In the 96 previous meetings between these two teams across all competitions, Birmingham have claimed 32 victories while Blackburn have won 38, and they have drawn in 26. Blackburn have scored 173 goals and conceded 147 in the process.

Birmingham City Team News

John Eustace may decide to make changes to his Birmingham XI in order to introduce fresh legs, but the back five should remain the same.

Hannibal Mejbri and Juninho Bacuna are both in contention to earn a recall in midfield, while Scott Hogan may get a run out ahead of Lukas Jutkiewics.
