Aston Villa were in the doldrums under Steve Bruce although they appear to have turned a corner with Dean Smith and the recent 3-0 victory at Derby saw them run riot in the second half.
John McGinn was particularly impressive in midfield, with Jack Grealish and Conor Hourihane also running the show and they look worthy favourites to claim victory over a Birmingham side who appear to be playing this fixture at the wrong time.
Garry Monkís side sit level on points although they havenít kept a clean sheet in their previous four games and the last two matches have seen them concede three goals each time. Best odds for the Aston Villa win is 1.80 with Boylesports.
