Aiming to pull clear of the relegation places, Peterborough United take a trip to the St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium to face Birmingham City on Tuesday.

The hosts head into the game fresh off the back of ending their seven-game winless run and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling.

Birmingham City finally gave their fans something to cheer for as they claimed a 2-1 victory over Barnsley on Saturday.

Prior to that, Lee Bowyer’s men were on a run of seven games without a win, losing five and claiming two draws.

With 31 points from 27 games, Birmingham City are currently 17th in the EFL Championship table, level on points with Swansea City.

Meanwhile, Peterborough United failed to steer clear of the relegation places last time out as they fell to a 3-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.

Prior to that, Darren Ferguson’s men progressed to the next round of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers before losing 4-1 at the hands of Coventry City a week later.

With 19 points from 25 games, Peterborough United are currently 22nd on the log, three points behind Reading just outside the drop zone.
