Birmingham vs Brentford live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 12 September, 12.30pm BST

Brentford are reeling from last season. They were so close to a first season in the Premier League after reaching the play-off final - in truth, they were so close to automatic promotion and threw it away at the end. Now, they need to pick themselves back up and hope that they can keep the majority of this talented squad together.

Birmingham City are building too. The money earned from the Jude Bellingham sale to Borussia Dortmund is going to finance some much-needed new blood. Aitor Karanka  will want the club to push on and finish much higher than the 20th spot they reached last season. 

Kick-off is at 12.30pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports FootballSky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Ultra HD in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Birmingham vs Brentford live stream from outside your country 

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Bruno Fernandes masterclass. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
