Eustace Faces Former Club Birmingham In Blackburn's Bid For Revival

In a crucial clash in the Championship, former Birmingham boss John Eustace will lead Blackburn against his old club on Tuesday as both sides aim to turn their fortunes around. Leicester‘s dominant form in the league under the guidance of Enzo Maresca sees them comfortably perched at the top, while struggling Sheffield Wednesday faces an uphill battle.

Leicester, now 11 points clear at the top, are eyeing another victory to push closer to a promotion. The absence of key players like Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho could be a concern, but their strong home record stands in their favor. Meanwhile, Wednesday’s injury concerns surrounding Josh Windass and others adds to their hurdles in this encounter.

The Foxes‘ attacking prowess, having scored a remarkable 66 goals this season, makes them a formidable force. Their home ground advantage at the King Power Stadium against the Owls, who struggle away from home, sets the stage for a potentially high-scoring affair.

Over at St Andrew's, another intriguing narrative unfolds as Eustace, now in charge at Blackburn, faces Birmingham, the team he left in October. Birmingham, under new management with Tony Mowbray, are struggling for consistency, while Blackburn is buoyed by a recent win under Eustace’s guidance.

Mowbray’s tenure has seen some ups and downs, with recent away defeats dampening their spirits. In contrast, Blackburn’s top scorer Sammie Szmodics has provided them with a cutting edge, and the team will look to capitalize on the freshness Eustace brings as they visit Birmingham for this league encounter.
