The second instalment in Birmingham City s sensational season as the Blues return to the top flight at the first time of asking. Tension-filled and never ever dull, City had their fans on the edge of their seats for most of the second half of the season, chasing Wolves at the top and keeping the chasing pack at bay. Of course, it wouldn t be the Blues if they didn t do it the hard way. Defeat at home to Preston meant nothing less than victory at rivals Reading on the final day would guarantee them promotion. And the man who earned the points on the first day did it again, Kevin Phillips the hero as City triumphed and booked their place back where they belong.
