THE PREDICTION

Aitor Karanka’s first game in charge at Birmingham sees playoff finalists Brentford visit St Andrews. Bees manager Thomas Frank may choose not to feature star forward Said Benrahma, with the Algerian international thought to be attracting serious interest from Premier League clubs. The lack of Benrahma could make the difference, as Birmingham take advantage of Brentford’s subsequent lack of cutting edge up top and sneak an unlikely victory here.
