Birmingham City preview: A brush with a familiar face (or four)
Friday, 18th Dec 2020 18:58 by @Phil Spencer
Middlesbrough end a frantic four-week period with a trip to face Birmingham City.
The clash with the Blues will be the Teessiders' ninth match in just one calendar month, and will see them meet up with a number of old boys.
Aitor Karanka is in charge at St Andrews these days and he'll be hoping to get a victory over the club where he enjoyed so much success - especially with the likes of George Friend, Adam Clayton, Lucas Jutkiewicz and to a lesser extent, Josh McEachran.
