Birmingham host QPR to St. Andrew’s Stadium at the EFL Championship on Sunday. Both the sides are placed miles apart from one another at the league table.

Birmingham is placed 17th in the league table having 27 points out of the 23 matches played. Lee Bowyer’s men are going through a bad run of form winning only once in their last 5 outings.

The hosts have not played a game in over two weeks due to COVID. Their games got rescheduled due to the spread of the virus.

In their last match, Birmingham City suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers.

On the other hand, QPR returned to winning ways after a win against Bristol City on Thursday. They will travel to Birmingham with a fair share of confidence with the win.

Mark Warburtons’ men have 38 points out of the 23 matches played and are currently placed in the 7th position. His side has won three out of the 5 matches played.
