Brummies can bounce back with Wolves win
DESPITE two recent crushing home defeats to Swindon and Coventry, Birmingham can get back to winning ways and successfully give up four points at home to Wolverhampton tonight.
These two rivals met in a pre-season Midland League clash last month and the Brummies emerged 50-43 winners on that occasion and a similar scoreline could be on the cards tonight.
The Perry Barr management will be looking for a response to those two heavy defeats but are at full strength tonight and should be able to see off a side who tend to do much better on their home track than away from Monmore Green.
Ben Barker, Bjarne Pedersen, Seb Ulamek and Danny King form a solid front four while Martin Smolinksi is also more than capable at this level. On the whole, Josh Auty has made an excellent start to the season and he could be a trump card for The Brummies at reserve.
Wolverhampton look over-reliant on Freddie Lindgren and Tai Woffinden, who have both started the season well, particularly Woffinden.
However, Nicolai Klindt and Ty Proctor will have to bring their A-games tonight if the Wolves are to push Birmingham hard.
Pontus Aspgren will need time to settle in while Thomas Jorgensen comes in for struggling reserve Lukasz Sowka, who is in action in Poland tonight.
Fellow reserve Ricky Wells is capable of quick getaways but Birmingham’s greater overall strength in depth can see them defy the handicap tonight.
