Birmingham City

Weekend Preview – April 13-14


Kicking off the weekend action on Friday is West Brom v Sheffield Wednesday. I hope for EPL Talk Community member fsquid‘s sake that Wednesday pull a result 🙂 West Brom will want all three points to keep themselves in the thick of the playoff race.

On Saturday Birmingham host Southampton, whose play-off hopes have been dealt a blow with the news that left-back and free-kick specialist Gareth Bale is out for two weeks with a slight calf muscle tear. Sunderland will look to maintain or extend their lead when they host 18th place QPR. QPR have won three straight to pull themselves out of relegation danger.

Second place Derby travel to Ipswich with hopes of improving on their fantastic away record. Derby have twelve wins on their travels this season while Ipswich have only won 11 times at home. It has the makings of a good match as Ipswich’s offence has come to life in recent matches scoring 5 against both Hull and Barnsley in recent weeks while putting up three goals against Plymouth.

Early season leaders Cardiff have falled out of the playoff picture but visitors Stoke would be right in the thick of it with a win on Saturday. Stoke, who currently sit seventh, have won three in a row and a fourth consecutive win would really put pressure on the other clubs in the playoff positions.

The massive relegation battle this weekend sees Leeds host Burnley with Southend hosts Barnsely. Southend could vault out of the relegation spots with a win. Hull could also find themselves in trouble if they lose and both Leeds and Southend win this weekend.

The scheduled games are as follows:

April 13
West Brom v Sheff Wed

April 14
Birmingham v Southampton

Cardiff v Stoke

Coventry v Preston

Crystal Palace v Wolverhampton

Hull v Colchester

Ipswich v Derby

Leeds v Burnley

Leicester v Norwich

Luton v Plymouth

Southend v Barnsley

Sunderland v QPR
