Birmingham City vs Watford prediction, preview and team news

Round four of the EFL Championship gets underway on Tuesday when Birmingham City and Watford go head-to-head at the St. Andrew's Stadium.

The Hornets head into the game unbeaten in their opening three outings of the 2022-23 campaign and will look to continue in the same vein.

Birmingham City were handed their first defeat of the 2022-23 EFL Championship campaign on Saturday as they were beaten 1-0 away to Cardiff City.

Prior to that, the Blues were dumped out of the EFL Cup courtesy of a penalty shoot-out loss against Norwich City after a 2-2 draw in normal time.

Birmingham City have now managed just one win from their last seven games in all competitions, losing four and claiming two draws in that time.

Elsewhere, Watford returned to winning ways last time out when they narrowly saw off Burnley 1-0 on home turf.

Prior to that, the Hornets claimed a 1-0 win over Sheffield United in their league opener on August 1 before playing out a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion a week later.

Watford are currently unbeaten in five straight outings across all competitions, claiming three wins and two draws since a 2-0 friendly defeat against Bolton Wanderers back in July.
