Swansea City vs Birmingham City Prediction

Swansea City are in fine form on home turf and are favourites to emerge triumphant on Saturday. Birmingham City have been poor on the road and have little motivation to seek all three points.

Considering the same, the Swans could secure a comfortable victory and a clean sheet on the night.

Prediction: Swansea City 2-0 Birmingham City.
