Head-to-Head


West Brom have a 60-35 advantage against Birmingham in 133 meetings with 38 draws. 

West Brom Form


West Brom lost 1-0 at Stoke before the international break, ending their 10-match unbeaten run. 

West Brom were wasteful with chances, only hitting the target twice. Stoke then scored with 10 minutes remaining to hand Albions their first league loss of the season.

Valérien Ismaël’s have been hard to beat at home this season. They have won three of their last five, including a 2-1 victory against QPR last time out. 

West Brom Squad & Team News


Defender Matthew Clarke will return to the squad following a long-term injury.

Forward Matt Phillips is likely to replace Jordan Hugill in attack. Hugill was taken off early against Stoke after a poor performance. 

Birmingham Form


Birmingham fell to their fourth league defeat in five following a disappointing 3-0 home loess against strugglers Nottingham Forest.

The Blues conceded two early goals and missed a handful of chances, with 18 shots and 54% possession. Another Forest goal in the second half confirmed defeat.

Lee Bowyer’s side have been punished for their failure to score goals. They have scored one goal in their last five and conceded 12. 

Birmingham Squad & Team News


Bowyer will stick with his favoured 3-5-2. He will look to freshen up his line-up after their poor spell of form. 

Troy Deeney may replace Scott Hogan in attack. Chuks Aneke could also come in for Ivan Sunjic in central midfield.
