Birmingham City will be looking to keep their good league form going this weekend as they take on fellow mid-table side Reading in the Sky Bet Championship.
Whilst both sides are not guaranteed safety yet this season, neither should feel overly panicked about that given that they have the quality to climb the table further.
Indeed, the home side have been excellent on the pitch in recent weeks in proving hard to beat and now they need to add more wins to their run to really start moving up the league in the final months of the season.
However, off the field matters remain unclear at the moment with the ownership coming under more scrutiny as we approach the weekend:

Why has this story been released the day before a game for maximum effect ? Manager asked to drive to Manchester when he is employed by the club to do as hes told ? The thing about 8-0 could have been banter? Does anyone pay for this?
