A real relegation six-pointer awaits on Sunday afternoon, as Stoke City host Birmingham City hoping to increase the gap between themselves and an impending drop zone. With four matches left and both sides struggling for form, this clash could provide some much-needed respite. Who will seize the initiative?

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions ahead of this fixture.

Stoke City vs Birmingham City Betting Tips

Stoke will hope for a quick turnaround in their fortunes after being effortlessly cut apart by league leaders Leeds on Thursday. It was their heaviest defeat of the campaign and unsurprising, considering Helder Costa and Pablo Hernandez continuously breached their backline.

They recorded 19 shots, 71% possession and I'm not exaggerating, could have easily scored double figures against the Potters. Michael O'Neill has a job on his hands motivating his deflated players to respond accordingly against their relegation rivals.

Birmingham, by contrast, are winless in their last 11 games across all competitions. Despite scoring first through Lukas Jutkiewicz, their 3-1 defeat by Swansea on Wednesday means they have lost three consecutive Championship fixtures.

They probably would have been somewhat comforted by the fact they didn't capitulate as effortlessly as Stoke did, 24 hours later. However, they're managerless ahead of this weekend's clash. Pep Clotet was set to leave once this season ended, but said it was “mutually agreed” he'd step down immediately after their latest loss.

First-team coach Craig Gardner and professional development coach Steve Spooner will be in charge on Sunday. It'll be interesting to see whether new faces motivates players, who are under no illusions about their worsening situation.

Stoke City vs Birmingham City Correct Score Predictions

Inconsistency rather typifies both sides' performances this season – especially Stoke. They've earned big results against West Brom, Swansea and Cardiff in 2020, yet often find themselves losing winnable fixtures.

Birmingham have quality but lack cohesion and their form is, quite frankly, dismal. Yet, it wouldn't be surprising to see them win for the first time since February here…
