Birmingham City 1 – Nottingham Forest 1
Won’t detain you long with a instantly forgettable game where Blues had two points snatched away from them by a dubious penalty decision by a ref who made up seven minutes of injury time in a second half of very few stoppages.
Rotherham United 0 – Birmingham City 1
Got away with one here. But who cares as Blues virtually sealed their place in the division. The worst and the most Karanka-like performance of the Bowyer reign saw a huge win to stretch the lead over Rotherham to nine points with games running out.
Birmingham City 2 – Stoke City 0
Three home wins on the bounce, three clean sheets in a row. Blues continued to ease themselves away from the relegation zone with what turned out to be a comfortable win against a limited Stoke side.
Brentford 0 – Birmingham City 0
A well-earned point on the road against automatic promotion chasing Brentford enhanced Blues chances of beating the drop.
Birmingham City 1 – Swansea 0
A massive three points for Blues in a match high on endeavour but low on quality.
Birmingham City 2 – Reading 1
Proper Blues are back. Fight and commitment won the three points here against a technically better Reading side who, though dominating possession, particularly in the second half, didn’t really trouble Etheridge unduly.
