Birmingham host Millwall at St Andrews in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having contrasting seasons so far.

Birmingham are currently 20th in the league, 11 points above the relegation zone. Lee Bowyer's side have been woeful of late, having lost their last three games on the trot. They will hope to turn things around with a win against Millwall on Saturday.

Millwall, on the other hand, are currently seventh in the league, one point off the playoff spots. Gary Rowett's side have faltered of late, having only won two of their last five games. They will look to bounce back with a win against Birmingham on Saturday.

This will be a great opportunity for Millwall to climb up the table with a win against a poor Birmingham side.

Birmingham vs Millwall Head-to-Head
