Birmingham City have given their hopes of surviving the dreaded drop to Sky Bet League One a huge boost with a 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers at The Macron Stadium.

Lukas Jutkiewicz netted the only goal of the match in the first half while The Blues battled bravely to the very end after Che Adams was sent off with 23 minutes remaining.

The result leaves Garry Monk’s men in 21st place, five points clear of Barnsley who occupy the final relegation spot. On an evening which could have confirmed both Sunderland and Burton Albion’s relegations to the third tier, Birmingham City fans took to Twitter to celebrate an excellent result.
