I’ve just got hold of some highights of the game against Birmingham earlier. The win makes us mathematically safe so fill your boots and enjoy!
Shola Ameobi gave us the lead from the penalty spot after a handball from Liam Ridgewell – a handball that ultimately saw the Blues defender see red as it was deemed as being deliberate. It looks pretty deliberate to me anyway!
Staven Taylor made it two before some comical defending allowed Lee Bowyer to pull one back just before the half-time whistle.
For the statto’s out there we had 63% of the possession, 17 shots on goal, 10 of which were on target. It wasn’t pretty at times, but it’s three points all the same.
I’ll take that everytime to be honest!
