Writing in his prediction column for Sky Sports, David Prutton is expecting nothing to separate Aston Villa and Birmingham City in the Second-City derby on Sunday.

Prutton believes the fixture will end 2-2, with Harry Redknapp failing to inspire his Birmingham side to victory.

Redknapp replaced Gianfranco Zola as Birmingham’s manager earlier this month, with the Blues falling into deep relegation trouble following a difficult Easter.

Birmingham have recorded just two victories in their last 22 Sky Bet Championship fixtures, and now sit just three-points above the relegation zone, with three games remaining.

Steve Bruce’s Villa side are sat comfortably in mid-table, but will be disappointed they have not mounted a serious promotion challenge in their first season back in the second-tier.

Villa will be without top scorer Jonathan Kodjia, who is serving a one-match suspension following his dismissal in Monday’s defeat to Fulham.
