Leeds United remain firmly entrenched in the Championship play-off zone despite some recent disappointing results, however they will face a stern test on Friday evening when they make the journey to the West Midlands to take on Birmingham City at St Andrews.
Garry Monk’s men have enjoyed an excellent season to date although they have stumbled somewhat in their pursuit of the automatic promotion places. Indeed the Whites are looking extremely doubtful as regards a top-two finish given that some ten points remain between themselves and second-placed Brighton & Hove Albion. Realistically the best that Monk’s men can hope for is a play-off place and in that regard Leeds United are looking pretty secure.
Birmingham City will be looking to upset Leeds’ promotion ambitions at St Andrews on Friday evening, however the home side have been something of a mixed bag this season and this is reflected in their lowly position of fourteenth in the Championship table.
Gianfranco Zola’s men won the West Midlands derby last Friday when they defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 at Molineux, however they will face a massive challenge this week when they face Leeds United.
