Brentford are aiming to make up for play-off disappointment by making a winning start to the new Championship season. The Bees take on Birmingham City at St Andrew's on Saturday.

Birmingham Form

Birmingham survived relegation from the Championship by just two points after a winless run dating back to February. The Blues failed to win any of their last 14 league games, losing seven and drawing the other seven games. 

An FA Cup defeat to Premier League Leicester last season and last week's 1-0 defeat at home to League Two Cambridge in the first round of the Carabao Cup extends that winless run to 16 matches.

Birmingham Team News

Birmingham will be missing Gary Gardner, Lukas Jutkiewicz, Josh McEachran and new signing Ivan Sanchez. 

George Friend, Jonathan Leko, Adam Clayton, Andres Prieto and Jon Toral could all make their league debuts.

Brentford Form

Brentford return to Championship action for the first time since losing the play-off final to Fulham 2-1 in extra-time. The Bees had lost their last two games of the regular season to miss out on automatic promotion.

The new season got underway with an underwhelming Carabao Cup victory over Championship new boys Wycombe Wanderers last Saturday, with Thomas Frank's side winning on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Brentford Team News

Brentford have no injury problems and should be at full strength. Striker Ollie Watkins has been sold to Aston Villa.

Birmingham vs Brentford Head to Head

The points were shared when the sides last met as they played out a 1-1 draw at St Andrew's in February last season. Birmingham had won the reserve fixture 1-0 at Griffin Park. Three of the last four matches have ended in a draw.
