Birmingham City

Last updated: Tue 04 February 2020 08:32
In Brief

Birmingham in impressive Nottingham Forest win. Scott Hogan ineligible. Dan Crowley and Kerim Mrabti doubtful.

Looking Back

Came from behind to win 2-1 at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, a very impressive victory.

Not really likely to have anything other than a mid-table Championship season so may well take this FA Cup clash at home to Coventry, their tenants, seriously.

Looking Ahead

Must do without Scott Hogan. The striker scored on his debut but was not signed in time to play in the FA Cup.

Dan Crowley and Kerim Mrabti have both emerged as doubts. Jonathan Grounds and Cheick Keita are also worries while Maikel Kieftenbeld remains out.

Points of Interest

Have six wins, three draws and six defeats on home soil in the league this term.

Coventry City

Last updated: Tue 04 February 2020 06:20
In Brief

Superb league form continued with a 2:1 win at Bristol Rovers. Play their home games at Birmingham's St.Andrew's stadium, so this will not really feel like an away game. No new selection issues.

Looking Back

Coventry's fine league form continued at Bristol Rovers, as they edged out the Gas with a 2:1 scoreline.

The Sky Blues play their home games at Birmingham's St.Andrew's stadium this season, so they will be in very familiar surroundings when they take on the Blues.

Looking Ahead

Wesley Jobello is a long-term absentee and is out for the season.

The sole other absentee is deadline signing Ryan Giles, who is ineligible.

Points of Interest

Coventry have lost only two league away games so far this season. They have recorded four wins and a draw in their last five league games on the road. This is after going winless in their opening nine.
