Attendance: 20,523

Ticket: £25 – Programme: £3

A comfortable win for Blues, following a goalless first half…

Preston goalkeeper Declan Rudd gifted Birmingham the first goal just after the restart, allowing Maikel Kieftenbeld’s overhit pass to bounce over his foot and into an empty net…

Jacques Maghoma scored a cracking second, bringing the ball down on his chest before turning and firing across Rudd into the far corner. Preston never looked like getting back into the game after that, and Che Adams wrapped it up, adding a third with fifteen minutes remaining…

Certainly more entertaining than Christmas shopping…

First Half: Newcastle Defend…

The feelgood factor is starting to build but with a note of caution attached. This is still Mike Ashley’s football club, and the wheels could fall off spectacularly at any time…
