🗞️ Team News: Birmingham City
Birmingham City manager Pep Clotet has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a fully healthy group ready to go.
We are thinking that The Blues could line up in a 4-4-2 system and select Lee Camp, Wes Harding, Jake Clarke-Salter, Harlee Dean, Maxime Colin, Jérémie Bela, Jude Bellingham, Maikel Kieftenbeld, Dan Crowley, Lucas Jutkiewicz and Scott Hogan.
🗞️ Team News: Hull City
Hull City boss Grant McCann has to currently contend with reduced team options. Jon Toral (Thigh Problems) and Angus MacDonald (Cancer) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
There’s a good chance that The Tigers seem most likely to play in a 4-4-1-1 system by sending out George Long, Matthew Pennington, Jordy de Wijs, Angus MacDonald, Callum Elder, Josh Bowler, Kevin Stewart, Herbie Kane, Mallik Wilks, Jon Toral and Josh Magennis.
In our opinion, Birmingham City will likely get the goals that they need against Hull City, who won’t find it easy to break down their defence. We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory for Birmingham City when all’s said and done.
