Separated by just three points and two places in the EFL Championship table, Birmingham City and Hull City lock horns at the St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium on Saturday.

The hosts will be seeking to turn the tables on the Tigers after failing to win any of the last five meetings between the sides since 2018.

Birmingham City returned to winning ways last weekend as they saw off Bristol City 2-1 away from home.

Prior to that, they were on a three-match winless run, picking up one draw and losing two in that time.

With 40 points from 36 games, Birmingham City are currently 18th in the EFL Championship standings, level on points with Bristol City.

Meanwhile, Hull City failed to make it two wins from two last time out as they fell to a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion.

This followed a 3-0 victory at Peterborough United on February 26 which saw their six-game winless run come to an end.

With 37 points from 36 games, the Tigers are currently 20th in the league table, two spots adrift of Saturday’s hosts.
