Birmingham City stay in the Championship


Birmingham City edge closer to relegation with defeat

Birmingham City are edging ever closer to relegation tonight after losing once again at home to Wigan Athletic.

Callum McManaman got the one and only goal of the game in the third minute to give Wigan the three points.

The result means Birmingham missed out on the chance of jumping out of the bottom three. They remain in the relegation zone in 22nd place on 43 points with just one more game left to play.

Their chances of survival in the Championship will now go down to the last game of the season on Saturday when they travel to Bolton Wanderers.

How the fans can help Birmingham City tonight

Dr David Fletcher, a sports psychologist, says Birmingham City fans need to be the "12th player" ahead of their match against Wigan tonight.

The Blues are currently in the relegation zone and have not won at home since October last year.

They are desperate for a win to keep their chances of playing in the Championship next season alive.
