Birmingham managed to create plenty of chances on Wednesday evening, when they travelled to the south coast to face Bournemouth, but Lee Bowyer‘s side could not capitalise on Jefferson Lerma being sent off, and ended up falling to a 3-1 defeat.
That was the fourth consecutive match that the Blues have conceded at least two goals, and having averaged just one goal per game away from home this season, defeat was always likely in midweek once the Cherries had taken a two-goal lead in the first half.
Despite a poor run of form, Birmingham have managed to get on the scoresheet at least once in their last eight matches, suggesting that their biggest problem lays in their defensive third, conceding too many goals.
Bowyer’s team are currently 13 points clear of the relegation zone, but all of the sides below them have at least one game in hand on them, meaning that Birmingham will have to improve their form to avoid being dragged further into a relegation battle.
Taylor Richards, Adan George, Marcel Oakley and Troy Deeney will all be absent from Birmingham’s matchday squad due to injury, with all three except George expected to make their returns later this month.
Scott Hogan and Lyle Taylor will continue to lead the line for the hosts, looking to add to their 15 goals between them this season, with help from Juninho Bacuna and Onel Hernandez in their attacking midfield roles.
Luton have no new injury or suspension concerns, so could name the same starting 11 which secured the three points on Tuesday evening, meaning that Harry Cornick is likely to start up top with Adebayo.
Amari’i Bell and James Bree will be expected to provide an attacking threat from their wing-back roles, with the latter being Luton’s most creative player this season having provided five assists.
