Bristol City vs Birmingham City: Score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV, h2h – Sky Bet Championship preview
Ashton Gate Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Bristol City and Birmingham City. 

Bristol City will make a late decision on Jack Hunt’s fitness for the visit of Birmingham.

The defender has been working his way back from a calf injury and manager Lee Johnson told the club’s website he “could be close”,

though he will consider giving Hunt an under-23 game first to build his fitness.

Korey Smith remains some way from a return following a knee injury – the midfielder is doing only straight-line running drills in training. 

Johnson will watch from the directors’ box as he serves a one-match touchline ban, with assistants Dean Holden and Jamie McAllister on duty in the dugout.

Birmingham boss Garry Monk almost has a full squad to select from. No new injury concerns emerged from Saturday’s 2-2 draw at home to Blackburn.

Defender Marc Roberts (calf) and midfielder Charlie Lakin have been back in light training 

but are not expected to be involved at Ashton Gate. Birmingham is eighth, six points behind their sixth-placed opponents.

The two teams face each other in the postponed fixture and we are positive that both Bristol City and Birmingham City will go for a win in this clash.

Team News of Bristol City vs Birmingham City

Bristol City forward Andreas Weimann (back) continues to be assessed, while defender Jack Hunt (calf) could be involved after returning to training.

Head coach Lee Johnson will watch from the stands as he serves a one-match touchline ban after receiving a fourth yellow card of the season at Norwich.

Birmingham centre-back Marc Roberts (calf) and midfielder Charlie Lakin are back in training.

And Blues boss Garry Monk has no fresh injury worries to concern him.

Bristol City are sixth in the Championship table, two places and six points ahead of Birmingham.

The Robins sit in the play-offs berth ahead of the visit of the Blues and they are determined to retain their spot in top six. 

The Blues, on the other hand, are six points behind top six, meaning that Tuesday’s match is of big importance for the visitors as well. 

Anyhow, a lively contest is on the horizon and we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. 

You should bear in mind that Bristol City scored exactly two goals in each of their previous three home games in the Championship.
