I know there's an FA Cup game next but looking at the next Championship games I do wonder how Boro are evens to beat Birmingham. (12:30 16th Jan).

Boro have been in very decent form, while Birmingham have looked relegation fodder. I've taken the early price with Skybet as I can only see them getting shorter (already odds on everywhere else).

I think the bookies are wary of two very direct and ugly tactical approaches clashing and nullifying each other. I share your view, @yossa6133, that I also like Aitor Karanka but it's just not working for him at Birmingham. I feel that club is rotten to the core and I'm not sure who can get them performing without serious financial overhaul. I also always have to back a Neil Warnock side on their own patch!

Cardiff vs Norwich

The Championship delivers a full schedule this weekend and it's Cardiff versus Norwich in a 3pm GMT kick-off on Saturday afternoon that is taking my attention with the action taking place at the Cardiff City Stadium. It was only a few weeks ago that the visiting team schooled us on their own turf and, I'm not going to lie, I'm still not feeling very optimistic as a City fan.

Cardiff are still struggling. The FA Cup 3rd Round defeat to Nottingham Forest continued to show that we're a team lacking in the final third that also has an ineffective central midfield and a back-line that can be inconsistent. Neil Harris is on borrowed time with many fans wondering why we've not looked to replace him already. There are rumours that Kieffer Moore and Jordi Osei-Tutu could return to the first team but captain Sean Morrison is still out injured. The club is down in 15th place and it's 4 games lost in a row across all competitions now. It seems bizarre that we're set to complete the double signing of Max Watters from Crawley Town and Frederic Guilbert from Aston Villa when Harris may very well not be in charge in a week or so time.

Norwich are a complete contrast to Cardiff right now. Daniel Farke's men are 1st in the table and they're further proof that sticking with your manager after you're relegated from the Premier League can be worth the commitment. The Canaries have won 6 of their last 8 league games and they're now 4 points clear at the top of the table ahead of second placed Swansea. Scoring goals is still something Farke will want to see his team improve on with the club having scored an average of just 1.34 goals per game this season. That includes scoring just 2 goals in their last 3 league matches.

The score was 2-0 to Norwich when these two sides met just before Christmas on 19th December at Carrow Road. It was a one-sided game where the hosts probably should have scored more. Not a lot has changed since that game and I still feel that, under Harris, we're a team that aren't going to improve massively now. The team looks short on ideas, quality, and confidence. Norwich are going back up this season. I'm fairly sure about that. My best hope is Cardiff can grind out a bore draw but I think Norwich could sneak this one.
