Birmingham vs Cardif: Birmingham City vs Cardiff City: Pundit predicts the outcome of Steve Cotterill’s first game,

EFL pundit David Prutton reckons Steve Cotterill will begin his reign as Birmingham City manager with a draw against Cardiff City. Cotterill takes the St Andrew’s dugout as boss for the first time to face the league leaders.

Carl Jenkinson is still out for Blues with a shoulder injury..Cardiff striker Rhys Healey is still out with a cruciate ligament injury. While defender Lee Peltier is just one booking away from suspension.

Cardiff City travel to Birmingham for their Matchday 12 on Friday evening as Championship table-toppers after securing 24 points in 11 outings, with a four-match unbeaten streak now behind them. They’ve beaten Sunderland (1-2) and Leeds United (3-1) with draws against Sheffield Wednesday (1-1) and most recently Derby County (0-0) also on the record and we do feel they’re very confident at this point.

Blues go into the match having lost seven of their last nine games in all competitions including a 6-1 thumping at Hull City last time out while visitors Cardiff have been defeated just once all season and sit a point above Wolves at the top.
