Birmingham welcome Blackpool to St Andrew's Stadium in the Championship on Saturday, April 22nd. Can the Blues make it two wins on the spin when they host the Seasiders? Read our Championship predictions along with the latest odds for the fixture below in our detailed match preview.

Today's Predictions for Birmingham vs Blackpool

Blackpool have lost five of their last six matches in the Championship ahead of their meeting with Birmingham on Saturday. Read our top Birmingham vs Blackpool predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Birmingham to Win

A run of three wins in six games has pushed Birmingham up to 15th position in the Champions and the Blues can add another feather to their cap when they host Blackpool on Saturday. The Seasiders, who have lost five of their last six assignments, sit second from bottom in the table and they have been beaten eight times in a row on the road. That record is difficult to dismiss, and our first Birmingham vs Blackpool prediction recommends a stake on a home in this one.

Under 2.5 Goals

Birmingham should have enough about them to force a victory this weekend, though the Blues’ lack of oomph in the final third should ensure that excitement levels are low at St Andrew's Stadium. 100% of Birmingham’s last seven competitive matches there have featured under 2.5 goals and we don’t expect things to change when they host Blackpool. The Seasiders have notched one or fewer goals in each of their last 13 away tests, so back under 2.5 goals to be registered here.

Birmingham vs Blackpool Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Birmingham vs Blackpool lineups and team news for Saturday’s Championship bout below.

Birmingham

Birmingham could be without the services of Gary Gardner, Dion Sanderson, Troy Deeney, Josh Williams, Tate Campbell, George Hall and Przemyslaw Placheta on Saturday. The Blues did brilliantly to win 1-0 at Millwall last time out and their confidence levels should be topped up this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Birmingham: Ruddy – Colin, Roberts, Long, Friend – Bielik, Bacuna – Chong, Hall, Khadra – Jutkiewicz

Blackpool

Blackpool have several personnel issues to contend with at the moment. Marvin Ekpiteta and Charlie Goode are missing at the back, while Tom Trybull, Kevin Stewart and Liam Bridcutt are absent in midfield. Further forward, Gary Madine and Shayne Lavery are also in the treatment room.

Predicted Lineup for Blackpool: Grimshaw – Lawrence-Gabriel, Nelson, Thorniley, Lyons – Patino, Fiorini, Rogers, Anderson, Hamilton – Yates

Player to Watch – Lukas Jutkiewicz

Millwall couldn’t handle burly Blackpool striker Lukas Jutkiewicz last weekend and the 34-year-old score the game’s only goal at The Den. Jutkiewicz has a modest five-goal haul for the campaign overall, though he will be determined to add to that tally this weekend.
