Birmingham City host Watford in the Championship with both teams on a good run of form.

Struggling Birmingham City host Gianfranco Zola's impressive Watford on Saturday as they look to put further distance between themselves and the bottom three.

Wade Elliott struck a late equaliser at Charlton Athletic last time out for Birmingham, which extended their unbeaten league run to five.

Watford squandered a two-goal lead at home to Crystal Palace, but are still well-placed in fourth in the Championship.

Both teams have players one yellow card away from suspension but neither has any fresh injury concerns. Stephen Carr and Will Packwood for Birmingham remain the only long-term absentees.
