Over and out

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.

Lack of fringe benefits

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.

Bowyer saves the day

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.

Blues pay the penalty

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.

Is it safe?

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.

Three is the magic number

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.

Bees stung

Brentford 0 – Birmingham City 0

A well-earned point on the road against automatic promotion chasing Brentford enhanced Blues chances of beating the drop.
