One to Watch: Dwight Gayle

The Newcastle loanee has been excellent so far for Moore’s team, and whilst he may prefer playing Premier League football, he is set to be key figure in Championship previews this season.

Three league goals so far, including two in their last game – a 2-1 victory over Stoke – has him bang in form.

There is always a goal threat when he is around, and he is at 5/1 with Sky Bet to score first here.

Birmingham City vs West Brom Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Birmingham take on West Brom in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday night

Whilst West Brom are the clear favourites here, given their start to the season and overall squad quality, this game will be feisty.

Birmingham’s city rivalry is with Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa, but they have a long running rivalry with the Baggies to the east of the city, and this game has had its fair share of incident over recent seasons. 

Two of the last five meetings between them have seen red cards shown, one to each side. Add to that the fact that Birmingham have already had former West Brom player Craig Gardner sent off this season, a dismissal is a real possibility.

With that in mind, a red card to be shown on Friday night is a football prediction that is worth considering for this game, priced at 9/2 with Paddy Power. 

Predicted Score: Birmingham City 1 - 2 West Brom
