Clean sheets have been hard to come by for Bowyer's men, with City having conceded 15 goals since that 1-0 win over the Baggies.


They host a Blackburn team this weekend who saw their remote play-off hopes end last weekend in a 3-0 home defeat against Premier League bound Bournemouth. Here is all you need to know on how to follow Saturday's match...

Blackburn Rovers make the trip to Birmingham City with Tony Mowbray looking for the win which will secure a top-10 finish in the Championship standings.


At a time when Mowbray will be taking charge of his final Rovers game, Lee Bowyer may find himself in a similar situation in the Blues dugout with Birmingham down in 20th position and having gone five matches without success.


There was a feeling at the end of last season that Mowbray should have been departing Ewood Park with things having seemingly gone stale, but the veteran boss proved everyone with that opinion wrong during the opening half of 2021-22 as Blackburn became promotion candidates.


However, after recording just 21 points from as many matches since the turn of the year, Mowbray has made the only decision that he can and revealed that he will be stepping down as manager after five years in charge.


While the 58-year-old has brought stability to Rovers, they have not been able to retain a cutting edge long enough to challenge for the Premier League, and they will go in a different direction in the summer.


In the short term, four defeats have come in seven games, their latest 3-0 setback against Bournemouth last weekend ensuring that they dropped out of contention for the playoffs.


Although their goal difference means that they should be safe when it comes to finishing in 10th position or above, Mowbray will want to end on a high at St Andrew's.


At a time when Blackburn's issues have been on the pitch, many of Birmingham's have come off it, and there is an instability about Blues which has ensured that Bowyer's position in the dugout has never felt safe.


Given the level of player at his disposal, Bowyer should be guiding Birmingham to a higher finish than 20th, but the circumstances mean that everyone involved is probably satisfied with survival in the second tier.


The West Midlands outfit have shown plenty of fight in their last two games, holding leads against each of Millwall and Cardiff City, but conceding late penalties have led to each game ending in draws.


With just one win from nine games, Bowyer can have few complaints if the much-criticised Blues hierarchy make another change over the coming weeks, but a fresh start may benefit all parties in the long term.
