Birmingham City vs Huddersfield Town Preview
Birmingham City have had a difficult season so far, sitting down in 19th place in the Championship. That being said, they have been in good form recently. A 3-1 win against fellow strugglers Sunderland at St Andrews was followed up by a very impressive 1-3 win at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday.
With survival in the Championship the key goal for this season and a huge derby match against Aston Villa coming up at the weekend, there are likely to be a number of changes to the starting 11, just as there were for the first meeting. Isaac Vassell will miss out due to an ankle problem.
Huddersfield Town have themselves been struggling in the Premier League, and their recent form is not very good at all. They have not won a league match for quite some time, and in the last week alone they have suffered 0-3 and 2-0 defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United respectively.
Changes are also likely to be made for the away side. David Wagner will certainly have one eye on the Premier League weekend fixture, where they will need to pick up points. Laurent Depoitre and Steve Mounie will fight for one spot up front, with Mounie likely to get the nod this time. Jon Gorenc Stankovic and Elias Kachunga will miss out through injury.

Birmingham City vs Huddersfield Town Prediction
The FA Cup is not a priority for either of these sides. I’m sure both managers would freely admit that, but a defeat would still be a blow to the confidence of both sets of players. Whoever wins this tie will be presented with a home game against Manchester United, so there is plenty of reason to go for the win.
Huddersfield in particular will be looking for revenge after falling to a 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford this past Saturday. This of course is a replay for the fourth round tie that originally took place on the 27th January at the John Smith’s Stadium. Steve Mounie put Huddersfield in front before Lukas Jutkiewicz equalised for the Blues.
Previous meetings between the two sides have been very even, with many of the contests ending up as draws. It would not be a surprise at all to see this contest level after 90 minutes, only to go all the way to extra time.
With so many changes to both teams, it is tough to predict how both sides will perform. Birmingham have looked much better recently, but Huddersfield do have Premier League quality players. The tip is for a draw after 90 minutes, with a 1-1 correct score.
