Bournemouth – Birmingham PREVIEW

  • Bournemouth closed the gap on the second-placed side to just a point after their 1-0 win in their last Championship outing, and thanks to good defending they’ve now seen their previous eight Championship victories come ‘to nil’. Having now conceded just 0.86 goals on average per league outing, possessing one of the division’s best defences could ultimately be what secures Bournemouth’s return to the Premier League at just the second time of asking.
  • They did suffer a shock 1-0 FA Cup home defeat at the hands of non-league Boreham Wood at the weekend though, but there may be no better return to league action than a match vs Bimingham, a side Bournemouth have won eight straight H2Hs against. That includes their largest-ever league win in the post-World War era, a spectacular 8-0 thrashing back in 2014/15 – a season the ‘Cherries’ won the Championship.
  • A record-breaking repeat result isn’t expected, especially as Bimingham have managed to score twice in two straight H2Hs here (L2), although a 6-2 defeat at Fulham last month shows another embarrassing result isn’t out of the question. Even more so as the ‘Blues’ are in disarray on and off the pitch with a 2-1 defeat last time out cementing their poor ten-game Championship form (W1, D4, L5), a game that was also accompanied by protests from fans against the current running of the club.
  • Despite those issues a 13-point gap remains between Birmingham and the relegation zone, but a failure to record a clean sheet for 11 competitive games, coupled with a 17% win-rate as an outsider this Championship season, indicates that gap may shrink rather than grow by full-time.
  • Players to watch: Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke has netted the opener in seven of his last nine goalscoring games but could be beaten to the first strike by Lyle Taylor, who’s on the cusp of scoring in three consecutive club games for the first time since August 2019 after netting the opener in Birmingham’s last two outings.
  • Hot stat: The eventual match winner has led at half-time in five of Bournemouth’s last six games.
