  • Venue: Hillsborough

Two sides in the bottom six of the English second division meet on Friday night, as Sheffield Wednesday play host to Birmingham City.

Finishing in the bottom ten has been the story of the hosts in recent years. The Owls currently occupy one of the last two spots in the standings and avoided defeat in just one of their last four league games. However, Danny Röhl's men will be buoyed by the fact that they lost just one of their last three meetings with Birmingham.

Like their hosts, Birmingham City are not having a great season. The Blues lie in the bottom half of the table, but their recent form is better than that of Sheffield Wednesday. Tony Mowbray's side lost just one of their last three league outings, winning one and drawing one.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham City Betting Tips: Both teams to score

Friday's game will feature some of the worst defences in the Championship this season. Sheffield Wednesday have conceded a record-breaking 50 goals in 30 games, while Birmingham City have conceded 45 goals in 29 games.

Goals were also the order of the day in recent matches between the two teams. On average, two goals per game were scored in the last eight matches, and bets on ''btts-yes'' were won in six of these fixtures.

Another reason to expect goals is that Birmingham City's recent games away from St Andrew's have rarely lacked entertainment. Only three of the visitors' last nine away games in the league finished with fewer than 2.5 goals.

Sheffield Wednesday team news

Juan Delgado has been unavailable since October 2023 due to a hip injury and Friday's game will come too soon for the right-back.

Juan Delgado and Will Vaulks are just one yellow card away from a one-match ban, but Sheffield United manager Danny Röhl has no other pressing issues.

Birmingham City team news

John Ruddy was absent for the defeat to West Bromwich Albion due to a muscle injury picked up in training, but head coach Tony Mowbray hopes the goalkeeper will be ready to return in a week or so.

Cody Drameh (toe), Dion Sanderson (ankle), Lukas Jutkiewicz (calf), George Hall (hamstring) and Alfie Chang (knee) are the visitors' other injury concerns.
