The English Championship continues this weekend and will see Birmingham City host Swansea City on Saturday.

Birmingham City have been in abysmal form lately as they have won just one of their last 10 games across all competitions. They played out a goalless draw against Huddersfield Town last time out, extending their winless run to seven games.

The Blues currently sit 19th in the league with just 13 points from 13 games. They will be looking to return to winning ways at the weekend when they host the Swans.

Swansea City are in better form than their hosts ahead of Saturday's clash. They have lost just once in their last five games.

The Swans picked up an impressive 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday as they came from behind to pick up all three points.

Swansea City are 15th in the Championship table with 17 points. With just four points from the promotion spots, they will be looking to win at the weekend as they target top-flight status again.

Swansea City are unbeaten in their last three games which have seen them score five times and concede just one. The visitors should get the win on Saturday.
