Birmingham City season review – 20/21
Something strangely familiar in the most unique of seasons.
Blackburn Rovers 5 – Birmingham City 2
The strangest of seasons came to an end at Ewood Park as an experimental Blues were overwhelmed by a Blackburn side who made their greater experience count in the last twenty minutes.

Birmingham City 0 – Cardiff City 4
Disappointing day at St Andrews as an experienced Cardiff side overwhelmed a disjointed mish-mash of a Blues side.
Derby County 1 – Birmingham City 2
Safe! A stirring second half comeback turned things around at Pride Park as Blues second half display grabbed the three points needed to ensure survival in the Championship.
