Getting To Know: Birmingham

20 February 2014

The low-down on Saturday's opponents...

With an impressive away record under their belt, Birmingham will be glad Saturday’s clash comes on the road, as they prepare to travel to Bloomfield Road.

Three years have passed since The Blues lifted the League Cup at Wembley and now they sit four places above The Championship relegation zone.

With one win since the turn of the year, City need a boost if they are to repeat last season’s mid-table finish.

The introduction of Federico Macheda has been a boost from Manchester United, whilst they’ve also taken Tyler Blackett on loan, after his spell with Blackpool.

When the pair met earlier in the season at St Andrew’s they drew 1-1, so another tight game could be expected.

How they’re getting on…

Birmingham have lost their last two games, including a disappointing defeat to Clark’s old side Huddersfield last time out.

Earlier this month City beat Charlton 2-0 away from home, their most recent victory, whilst a positive 3-3 draw with Derby came before that.

Taking February as a whole City have taken four points from 12 available so far.

Man in charge…

Clark is now amidst his second season at the helm, having joined the club in the summer of 2012.

His time with Huddersfield came to an end earlier that year, after he’d led them to a record 43-game unbeaten run.

Key man…

After joining on loan from Manchester United, Macheda has netted three times in a Birmingham shirt.

The spell at St Andrew’s follows on from time with Doncaster earlier on this season, where he netted a further three times.

On the road…

It is Birmingham’s away record which makes the most pleasant reading for Clark, as his side are much stronger on the road.

Six of City’s eight league victories have come away from St Andrew’s, whilst they’ve drawn a further two, going into Saturday's clash.
