BLUES IN FIGHT FOR THE POINTS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BIRM­ING­HAM City should not be de­ducted points, ac­cord­ing to the re­ceivers of the club’s par­ent com­pany.

Birm­ing­ham In­ter­na­tional Hold­ings Limited, based in Hong Kong, went into re­ceiver­ship last month.

The re­ceivers, Ernst and Young, told the League that they do not be­lieve that their ap­point­ment should be con­sid­ered as an ‘in­sol­vency event’ un­der Foot­ball League reg­u­la­tions.

If the League de­cided oth­er­wise, the Blues could be de­ducted ten points – putting them in rel­e­ga­tion trou­ble.

The League also re­ceived con­fir­ma­tion that the club have suf­fi­cient funds to com­plete the sea­son.
