Bitesize Prediction: Hull vs Birmingham – 05/03/24

Competition: Championship

Market: Hull win

Odds: 19/20 @ BetUS

Looking to shore up their position in the play-off chase, Hull will welcome Birmingham to the KCOM on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Hull might have spent large spells of last season looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap, the Tigers are enjoying a remarkable Championship flurry this season. Only continuing to receive a string of plaudits and with the mood in Liam Rosenior’s camp at a red-hot high, fans around the KCOM are now dreaming of the chance to book a famous play-off ticket in 2024. Opening up Tuesday’s showdown holding a one-point buffer in the top-six chase, Hull will know the importance of making another statement here. Losing just one of their previous eight Championship appearances, Hull have also gained a reputation for their rugged approach under the former Derby coach. With their recent purple patch underlined by a stellar 2-1 victory away at Southampton on February 20th, Rosenior’s high-flying squad have certainly bounced back from their sluggish start to the New Year.

As for the visitors, while Birmingham might have opened Tony Mowbray’s tenure with a welcomed boost, the Blues have largely come crashing back down to earth. Struggling to find any kind of fluidity this season and coming under increasing scrutiny, the former Blackburn boss appears to have a real job on his hands at St. Andrew’s. Firmly at the heart of an infamous Championship relegation scrap and opening Tuesday’s showdown with just their goal difference keeping them out of the drop zone, Birmingham have lost five of their previous seven appearances across all formats. Last seen over the weekend suffering last-gasp heartbreak on home soil as they eventually fell to a thrilling 4-3 loss at the hands of Southampton, the Blues have continued to show some glaring defensive issues this year. Crashing out of the FA Cup on January 27th following a routine 3-0 drumming against Southampton, we are predicting a home victory here.
