Home Birmingham City

Away Huddersfield

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

While Jota has been providing the inspiration for the Blues this season, striker Sam Gallagher has been very consistent in front of goal recently. He is 6/1 to score first and add to his tally of six goals in his last nine appearances.

2 We fancy:

A 1-1 draw, with the prospect of extra time and penalties to decide it, which is at 5/1. Neither side will be thankful for another game at this time of the season, but they may have to be in for the long haul on Tuesday night.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Birmingham striker Lukas Jutkiewicz has only scored twice for Birmingham this season, one of which was the equaliser against Huddersfield last month. He is 13/2 to repeat the trick and score last this time around.

Defender Jonathan Grounds is set to miss out for the Blues with an injury, with Arsenal loanee Cohen Bramall set to step in. Steve Cotterill did not make any additions to his squad in January, but summer signing Jota is in excellent recent form, scoring twice in Birmingham’s last game.

Huddersfield's Last Six:

Huddersfield’s last six: Won: 1 Drawn: 1 Lost: 4

Birmingham City vs Huddersfield Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Huddersfield Town’s Steve Mounie opened the scoring against Birmingham last time

Huddersfield will be frustrated to have another fixture added to their list, with Premier League survival the immediate concern for Wagner’s side. The Terriers struggled for large periods when these two met in January, with Steve Mounie and Danny Williams both missing chances to win it the first time around.

Fortunately for them, Birmingham also have one eye on avoiding the drop into League One, and Cotterill will name a team that reflect this. This is set to be a scrappy affair, with neither side delighted at the prospect of this replay. Huddersfield’s top flight experience might just give them an edge, and they are at 21/10 to win.

Both teams also face crunch league games this weekend. Birmingham travel to fierce local rivals Aston Villa, while Huddersfield host Bournemouth.

Huddersfield have scored just twice in their last five games in all competitions, and conceded 12 in that time, which could give Birmingham hope. The home win is available at odds of 15/8. At 5/6, this game to go beyond 90 minutes with Huddersfield getting through in the end looks tempting.

Predicted Score: Birmingham City 1 - 1 Huddersfield
