Our prediction for this Championship match:
After surviving Rotherham United in their last league match, Plymouth will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Birmingham City in the Championship round 23. The Pilgrims are a team with two faces, with the team producing excellent displays at home, while struggling on the travels and they are surely capable of matching the Blues at their Home Park. Both Bundu and Hardie limped off with injury against the Millers and the duo is rated doubtful for Saturday’s clash.
Birmingham City, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to promotion hopefuls Leicester City, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side. The likes of Kevin Long, Ethan Laird, Alfie Chang, Keshi Anderson, George Hall, and Tyler Roberts remain in the treatment room, while Cody Drameh will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
