Derby v Birmingham Odds: Betting suggests Marlon King can get on the scoresheet

There is live action from the Championship on Saturday as Derby welcome Birmingham to Pride Park in the 5.20pm kick-off. Both sides have endured some shaky form of late but it is Derby who start slight favourites despite losing successive league matches, while Birmingham are looking to move away from the relegation zone.

Derby are currently 6/5 in the latest match odds with Bet 365, who go 11/5 for a Birmingham win, although the draw could be the way to go at 12/5. Derby have suffered successive league defeats at Millwall and Crystal Palace which has left them in mid-table and in need of a positive result.

They are much stronger on home soil, where they have only lost one of eight in the league this season, and they will be hoping that Theo Robinson can find the back of the net this weekend. Robinson has scored seven goals this term and he is 11/2 to be first goalscorer, which could be worth a look when you consider Birmingham's slow starts this season.

The Blues have conceded a joint-league high seven goals in the opening 15 minutes of games in the league, while failing to score during that time themselves. B365 offer a tempting 12/1 for a half-time Derby win and full-time draw this weekend and that looks decent value as Birmingham look to enhance a run of form that has seen them win just two of their last nine games.

Furthermore, they have won only one of their nine away in all competitions this season but they are unbeaten in their last three trips away from St Andrews and they boast a man in form. Marlon King has scored three goals in his last three appearances, as well as six in his eight away league games this term, and B365 make him 11/2 to be first scorer and 10/3 to score Birmingham's first goal.

King is undoubtedly Birmingham's main goal threat and the Blues have received some positive news on the injury front as Curtis Davies is fit again and should take his place in the centre of defence, while Robert Hall goes straight into the squad following his loan move from West Ham. Stephen Carr and David Murphy both miss the game through injury but Birmingham could still come away with a point.

Derby, who could rest young starlet Jeff Hendrick, have won just one of their last 10 against Birmingham in all competitions, drawing four, while Birmingham have scored in their last 25 meetings with the Rams. Both teams to score is 4/6 odds on and the 1-1 correct score is an 11/2 punt for this live tea-time fixture.
