Birmingham City, Nottingham Forest or Blackburn Rovers to be relegated? Final table predicted

BCFC are two points ahead of their relegation rivals ahead of the last game of the season

It’s the question on everybody’s lips — will Birmingham City stay up?

The battle for survival will go right to the wire, with Blues currently two points ahead of Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest with one game to play.

Harry Redknapp’s side travel to Bristol City for a final day showdown — but will the 70-year-old guide Birmingham to safety?

Well, the stats geeks at Football Web Pages have the answer.

According to their predicted table, Blues WILL be playing their football in the Championship next season.

They reckon that Birmingham will finish two points ahead of Blackburn, who will go down.

Rovers head to Brentford on Sunday while Forest face Ipswich at home.

Here’s how the predictor reached the conclusion that Blues will stay up.

Although Forest are predicted to beat Ipswich, Blackburn’s forecast defeat at Brentford would see Blues safe regardless of the result at Ashton Gate.

If Harry Redknapp’s side fail to win, both of their relegation rivals would need to take three points to condemn Birmingham to relegation.

A victory at Ashton Gate would see Blues safe regardless of other results.

How is it calculated?

The results are calculated using the “percentage likelihood of the match resulting in a ‘home’ win, a ‘draw’ or an ‘away’ win.” The results are added to the current table to produce the final rankings.

The predictor correctly called Blues’ win at home to Huddersfield and the defeat at Villa Park before that.
