Wycombe Wanderers vs Birmingham City Prediction
Wycombe Wanderers are at the bottom of the league table, but have given a good account of themselves so far. The loss to Brentford will sting, but Gareth Ainsworth's side have proved that they are not an easy side to play against.
Birmingham City, on the other hand, are 20th in the league table, and like Wycombe Wanderers have won only one of their last five league games. In Aitor Karanka they have an experienced manager, but they will have to find solutions soon.
Birmingham City will be keen to get back to winning ways, but a draw seems to be an ideal result here.
Prediction: Wycombe Wanderers 0-0 Birmingham City
