There is more Sky Bet Championship action tomorrow and one of the most interesting match-ups occurs at Elland Road, as Leeds United host Harry Redknapp’s Birmingham City.

Both sides are having completely contrasted seasons so far, with Thomas Christiansen’s Leeds United looking exceptional this season, and are still unbeaten in all competitions.

Leeds’ excellence was showcased on Saturday as they thumped Burton Albion 5-0 at Elland Road on Saturday, with new signing Pierre-Michel Lasogga scoring a brace on his debut in a comfortable victory for the Whites.

The Yorkshire outfit currently occupy second spot in the Championship and they’ll be looking to secure their fourth consecutive league win against Birmingham tomorrow evening.

Redknapp’s Blues side are struggling this season and sit in a lowly 21st position, having only amassed four points from their opening six league games.

The side is made up of a host of new players as Redknapp went on a spending spree in the summer transfer window.

It’s evident that the Midlands side are in a transitional period, and it’s very hard for a Championship side to consecutively win games when in a phase such as this, so the Blues will be in for a tough match against the high-flying Whites.

Leeds are unlikely to alter the starting XI that started against Burton, and if Kemar Roofe, Samuel Saiz and Pablo Hernandez are on their A game, Birmingham could be in serious trouble.

Redknapp’s side will no doubt look to absorb Leeds United’s pressure and then hit them on the counter attack, using Jota as their main source of attacking flair and creativity.

But, with Leeds United on such red-hot form, it’s hard to look past Thomas Christiansen’s Leeds United in this one.

Score prediction: Leeds United 2-0 Birmingham City
