Clinton Morrison has predicted a win for his former team Birmingham City when they take on leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship this evening.

Wolves are a point clear of Cardiff City at the top as well as having this game in hand, while Birmingham sit inside the drop zone with Bolton Wanderers having leapfrogged them over the weekend.

Yet despite this gap, Morrison thinks the hosts will still emerge victorious when the two Midlands rivals face each other at St Andrew's.

"This is a derby and so the Birmingham players will be up for it and hopefully they'll get a result," the former striker said while a pundit on Channel 5's Championship programme. "I'm going for my old team Birmingham, 1-0."

Steve Cotterill's side have only won one of their last seven outings in the second tier of English football and a relegation battle looks like a very realistic prospect currently.

"I do worry for my old team," Morrison continued. "I speak to a lot of the fans and they're disappointed, especially as Villa are doing so well up there and Wolves are doing well."
