After tasting defeat last time out to Manchester City in FA Cup action, Birmingham City and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

In that game, Birmingham City managed 27% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. On the other side, Manchester City had 16 attempts on goal with 6 on target. Bernardo Silva (8', 15') and Phil Foden (33') scored for Manchester City.

The attacking players from Birmingham City have had real problems scoring goals over their previous 6 games, contributing the unsatisfactory return of only 3. In those fixtures, The Blues have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 16. That sort of trend might not be carried forward into this next game, of course.

Looking at their past form shows that Birmingham City:

  • have not beaten Middlesbrough in games played away from home for the previous 6 league games. Not the best of away records.
  • are without an away win for the past 2 league games.

It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock to be concerned about from an otherwise complete set of players. Ashley Fletcher (Hamstring Injury) will miss out.

Due to a completely healthy group to pick from, Birmingham City boss Aitor Karanka has zero fitness worries to report before this game.
