West Ham VS Birmingham match analysis

A Victor Obinna / Robbie Keane inspired performance saw West Ham clinch victory at Bloomfield Road and move a couple of places up the table. They're still in relegation territory but goal difference, and not points, is now the margin keeping them from safety. Grant believes that Obinna and Keane can be the ones to preserve the Hammers' Premier League status but their defence also needs to play its part. Interestingly, Upson didn't feature against Blackpool but he may come back into contention after Gabbidon limped out of the game. Their opponents, Birmingham, are immediately above them in the table making this match one of monumental importance in the battle for survival. The Blues fought back for a point at home to City but they've been beaten in their last two away matches including the Carling Cup semi-final first leg at Upton Park. West Ham will be seeking revenge after Birmingham progressed to Wembley by beating the Hammers in extra time at St Andrews but the Brum have won just a single Premier League fixture on the road this season. A fantastic game in prospect and one the Hammers just have to win. I think West Ham will win 2-1. Bet Home win is a good choice.
