Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham City Prediction and Betting Tips | February 9th 2024


Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City get round 31 of the EFL Championship underway when they go head-to-head on Friday.

The Blues are unbeaten in their last four visits to the Hillsborough Stadium and will look to extend this impressive run this weekend.

Sheffield Wednesday were dumped out of the FA Cup on Tuesday when they fell to a 4-1 against Coventry City at the Coventry Building Society Arena. This was in keeping with their struggles in the Championship, where they have failed to win their last four matches, claiming one point from a possible 12 since their 3-1 victory over Hull City on New Year’s Day.

With 23 points from 30 matches, Sheffield Wednesday are currently 23rd in the league table, four points above rock-bottom Rotherham United and eight points away from safety.

Meanwhile, Birmingham City suffered consecutive defeats for the first time this year as they were beaten 1-0 by West Bromwich Albion last weekend. Prior to that, Tony Mowbray’s men saw their four-game unbeaten run come to an end on January 27 when they fell to a 3-0 loss against Leicester City in the FA Cup.

With 32 points from 29 matches, Birmingham are currently 19th in the Championship table, level on points with Stoke City and just four points above the dotted line.
