Birmingham promoted to Premiership

[via AFP]

Birmingham City are back in the Premiership after being down in the Championship for one season.

The blues went down on the last day of the season in agonising fashion as they despite winning went down due to Fulham's last ditch win on the final day.

A 2-1 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Reading at the Madjeski stadium sees Birmingham automatically promote themselves to the Premiership.

Wolves had been promoted last week as they won the Championship too.

Keith Fahey and Kevin Philips were the scorers for Birmingham and Matejovsky brought a lifeline for Reading.

The four play off places went to Sheffield United,Preston,Burnley and Reading.The playoff games would take place on 8th-9th and 11th-12th May.
