Match preview: Owls v Birmingham

19 February 2021

Sheffield Wednesday host Birmingham City on Saturday at Hillsborough.

Both sides go into the weekend round of fixtures in the relegation zone on 28 points, one point from safety, though the Owls have played one game fewer than the Blues.

Wednesday won the points when the two sides last met back in October with Barry Bannan’s penalty the difference at St Andrew’s.
