birmingham have lost two on the trot, to coventry and wolves, and find themselves 4 points behind wolves currently. they can ill-afford another loss, and even a draw would be an unsatisfactory result given their ambitions of promotion. good news for them as seb larsson and radhi jaidi slowly regain match fitness, while the addition of nicky hunt on loan from bolton might help to stem the leak of goals at the back. i fancy birmingham to win this one, as nottingham forest are quite crap, and were lucky to SOMEHOW get a point against derby when the referee inexplicably disallowed two derby goals.
Eddy's prediction: $5 on birmingham -0/0.5 @ 1.800 = $9.00
