Birmingham and Derby County will meet in the 6th round of the Championship. Birmingham is playing in variable form, better results are expected, and the goal this season is a place among the three teams and a return to the Premier League. Derby County also cannot boast of a good game, and we will see if Wayne Rooney will find a recipe for better results.

Reason for Birmingham vs Derby County Predictions
Both Birmingham City and Derby County drew their matches before the international break, and as the Championship resumes, they’ll be the first to action on Friday. Home team Birmingham has eight points, and Derby has so far managed six. Birmingham has three clean sheets and two wins in their last five Championship matches, but they’ve failed to score in two of those five. They didn’t have the best finish at home last season, and they have started in the same fashion. They were winless in their previous four home matches in the Championship and failed to score in three. Both these teams had poor seasons in the Championship last season, but they’ll hope to make use of the rest that comes with the FIFA break. Ryan Woods plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Lukas Jutkiewicz plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Derby County has a transfer embargo and could only bring in players on free transfers in the summer, but the team has done better than expected so far. A win here will put them into the top six, at least before other weekend matches. They have one win in five games and are winless in three, with two clean sheets in five. Both teams have scored in three of Derby’s opening five Championship matches, and they have managed to score more than one goal in five Championship games. In the last ten games, Derby has managed to score more than a goal in just one of the previous ten league matches. They have one win in 11 away Championship matches, losing nine in the run, and they’ve failed to score in half of the last ten away league matches. Kamil Jozwiak finally shows his proper form and scores important goals. He creates a lot of problems for the opposing defenders. Graeme Shinnie found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
