The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

WE’RE only two games into the Sky Bet Cham­pi­onship sea­son so let’s not get ahead of our­selves, but Birm­ing­ham City do look like they are on the up.

They came up against a very con­fi­dent Bris­tol City side who ar­rived at St An­drews on the back of two big wins, but grad­u­ally grew into the game as it wore on.

If Harry Red­knapp can get the back­ing of the own­ers at St An­drews and bring in the qual­ity of player he would like, the Blues could be­come a real force to be reck­oned with this sea­son. But they will be hop­ing that the sec­ond-half in­jury suf­fered by the im­pres­sive Che Adams, who limped off with an ap­par­ent ham­string prob­lem, is not se­ri­ous.

As for Bris­tol City, they have started this sea­son on fire and will still be won­der­ing how they weren’t fur­ther ahead when Craig Gard­ner equalised yes­ter­day.

If they keep hold of their best play­ers and all the new sign­ings set­tle quickly, the Robins will have no prob­lems.
