After their win over Brentford at the weekend, Newcastle United will be turning their attention to the FA Cup as they host fellow Championship side Birmingham City at St. James’ Park in the FA Cup.
The hosts have been in a really good form under managed Rafa Benitez since the start of the season. Newcastle have climbed all the way to the top of the table with their win in the weekend. The team have suffered from inconsistency in their last few rounds in the Championship as they haven’t won two games in a row in their last 5 league games.
Newcastle have collected 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league matches. Their last game was against Brentford away from home where they won 2-1.
The Magpies are sitting at the top of the Championship table with 55 points from 18 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses. They have scored 50 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
The visitors are on the contrary from the hosts. Birmingham have been suffering from the lack of winning in their last few rounds in the Championship. The team have failed to win in their last five league games. They have collected a total of 2 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Nottingham Forest at home where both teams settled for a goalless draw.
Birmingham are sitting in the 12th place in the Championship table with 36 points from 9 wins, 9 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 30 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
