Looking at our next few games, I do wonder when we are going to actually win a match.

We are not getting spanked and just need to create a bit more, with the likes of morais, Armstrong and buckley available it's about getting the balance right.

Hopefully Parky will find the right mix.

2-1 Bolton

Not sure Fab if he goes for a 5-3-2 formation again we stand no chance of scoring. It ends up being Madine up front on his own. ALF is nowhere to be seen, as he is trying to help out in midfield or doing the job the wing backs are supposed to do.

A lot to do with the type of wig backs, little, Taylor and Darby are all converted full backs who reluctantly go forward, Ameobi, Morais and Buckley are all attacking wingers who will reluctantly defend.

I think if we stick Morais in for Little then we will hav a bit more going forward and options out wide.

Not sure the balance in the middle is right either, I do not see what Karacan has offered so maybe playing Buckley central will give us some options in the middle.

Ref watch: Darren England to take charge of Birmingham City trip

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Darren England will take charge of Wanderers' Sky Bet Championship trip to Birmingham City on Tuesday night.

Involved professionally within the game since 2013, the official has run the rule over just one Whites fixture in the past - last season's 2-1 home victory over Fleetwood Town.
 
Mr England's first game this term came last week as he oversaw Blackburn Rovers' Carabao Cup victory over Coventry City before manning Hull City's 4-1 win against Burton Albion on Saturday.
 
So far this season he has handed out eight yellow cards and one red card, having dished out 121 yellow cards and nine red cards from 42 outings last season.
 
Billy Smallywood and Mark Russell will run the line, while Andy Woolmer is the fourth official.

Brum are struggling for fit strikers ATM with Juke and Adams both sidelined but they've just signed Isaac Vassell (Darius' cousin) from Luton who is very quick but not as skilful as Darius was. Clayton Donaldson might also play.
They were unlucky against Ipswich whose goalie played a blinder and despite being the away team Brum had the majority of the chances. Then they beat Bristol City.
This is another game where I reckon a draw would be a good result for us, but I'm more hopeful that Parky will switch to a more creative system, however given his track record there's not much chance of that happening especially as it's an away game.

2 - 2.

It'll be hoofball, any sort of positive result will depend on Morais and his crosses.

No confidence at all at the minute.
2-0 to Brum and even with that score we'll get off lightly

Match facts

Birmingham have won each of the last three league encounters with Bolton by a 1-0 scoreline, the Blues' best winning run against Bolton since September 1965.

These two sides have not played out a draw at St Andrew's in the league since November 2000, with Birmingham winning seven and Bolton winning four.

Harry Redknapp has won his last eight home matches against Bolton in all competitions - one game with Portsmouth, six with Tottenham and one with QPR.

Bolton have failed to score in their last three league meetings against Birmingham for the first time since 1949 - they have never gone four consecutive league games without scoring against the Blues.

It seems like Phil has taken notice off me and left Darby out of the squad again. In addition to that he has started Morais. Good work Phil, all you need to do now is start Buckley.

Report: Birmingham City 0-0 Bolton Wanderers

Wanderers picked up their second consecutive point on the road following a 0-0 draw against Birmingham City at St Andrew's on Tuesday night.

TEAM NEWS

Phil Parkinson made two changes to the side who started against Millwall at the weekend, with Filipe Morais and Adam Armstrong in from the off for Wanderers with Mark Little and Adam Le Fondre dropping out.

FIRST HALF

With the sun setting at St Andrew’s, the game got underway at a somewhat tepid pace but it was the visitors who were enjoying the first forays into dangerous territory with Morais proving a threat early on.

Gary Madine meanwhile saw his close-range header fly narrowly wide of the post in the seventh minute of the clash.

Darren Pratley also enjoyed a glorious opportunity when collecting the ball following some beautifully crafted build-up play between Adam Armstrong and Morais, but the skipper’s shot through a crowded penalty area was blocked.

On Birmingham’s first venture into Bolton’s box meanwhile, David Cotterill saw a similar effort to Pratley’s hooked away at the last moment and Clayton Donaldson volleyed just wide of the goalmouth from a tight angle.

Cotterill was again in the mix with 20 minutes on the clock as his shot took a wicked deflection off Reece Burke just six yards out which Mark Howard somehow palmed away with a goal seemingly imminent.

The chance definitely boosted the home side’s confidence, with Wanderers forced onto the backfoot thereafter.

Despite their dominance however, they weren’t troubling Howard too much in the way of goalbound chances and come the half hour mark, we were still goalless.

With the clock running down to half time, the Whites were still looking dangerous themselves, with Madine coming within inches of connecting with Jem Karacan’s cross into the six-yard box.

Come the break however, neither side had been able to break the deadlock.

SECOND HALF

As the game restarted, Wanderers almost had the perfect opening to the second half as Morais’ wicked cross from the right flank caused carnage between Blues goalkeeper David Stockdale and his defender.

The shot-stopper flapped at the ball, with it somehow failing to end up in the back of the net.

Armstrong meanwhile came close with a header from another Morais cross just two minutes later, with Stockdale static as the frontman rose to nod narrowly wide.

Jacques Maghoma was left calling for a penalty kick in the 50th minute after going down in the area next to Dorian Dervite, but referee Darren England rightly showed City’s No.19 a yellow card for simulation.

Bolton were sensing that their golden opportunity was coming, but on the counter attack Birmingham were enjoying chances of their own, with their fans responding with their vocal backing.

With 20 minutes remaining, Wanderers threw Le Fondre into the mix in place of Armstrong in a bid to turn what was looking a likely point into three.

The Blues also responded in turn, with Isaac Vassell introduced for his City debut.

Madine enjoyed a great opportunity with 17 minutes remaining too, with Stockdale having to get down well at his near post to keep out his header.

The game was finely balanced, with frustration evident for both sides as they looked to force a winning goal, with Burke seeing a deflected effort from the edge of the box claimed by Stockdale after the keeper initially fumbled his tame shot.

With less than five minutes to go, it was end-to-end stuff at St Andrew's with defences being tested to their max.

And with five additional minutes added, it was everything to play for.

Despite the best efforts of both sides however, neither were able to force a winner inside the closing stages and the game ended all square.

A decent point and from the radio commentary we sounded a lot more positive but still worried we won't score enough goals. Glad to see Morais started the game as well.

Harry Redknapp believes Phil Parkinson is an 'outstanding manager' and has backed the Bolton boss to keep them in the Championship this season.
Having been appointed as the full-time successor to Neil Lennon in June 2016, Parkinson guided Wanderers to promotion as League One runners-up in his debut season and picked up a point for the second successive away game with a draw at Redknapp's Birmingham City on Tuesday night.
In comments made before that encounter, however, Redknapp had nothing but kind words to say about his opposite number, as well as heaping praise on Bolton as a club.
"Phil Parkinson has done a great job there," Redknapp told Birmingham's official website.
"He got them promoted last year and I think he's an outstanding manager.
"Bolton are a big club - one of THE club's in football. They have great tradition and had great players over the years so I was pleased to see them get back up last year.
"From Parkinson's point-of-view, if they can consolidate this year back in this division they'll be delighted.
"He's not going to expect to get promoted, I'm sure, but he'll certainly get the best out of his players as he always does and I'm sure they'll be OK."
