Leeds United and Birmingham City clash tonight at St Andrew’s for what is an important battle in the race for promotion, as the Peacocks will be able to consolidate their position of fourth place in the Championship with a win.
The battle for a top-six finish is extremely tight this season as sides all the way down to tenth will have outside ambitions of clinching a play-off spot- but it’s Leeds that are currently in the driving seat as things stand.
With a strong end to the season, Leeds could also sneak into the automatic promotion spots and rival fans have united against Garry Monk’s side this evening- as they’re praying Birmingham City do them a favour and keep three points in the Midlands.
The outcome of the clash is difficult to predict, following Birmingham’s return to winning ways last week, and Leeds certainly won’t have it easy. However, Monk’s side may be considered slight favourites ahead of this Friday night clash.
I'd love Blues to do a job on Leeds tonight

Think tonight's game will bring all bluenoses back to earth. Wolves were very poor last week, Leeds will be a different story #bcfc
