It’s been a long, hard journey but Birmingham City are finally bottom of the Championship.

Deservedly so, I’d say.

QPR’s last win on the road came against Blues back in February. Since then, they’ve failed to win in 17 away games.

Of course, they were always destined to break their hoodoo today. It was written in the script. Did anyone show that script to Steve Cotterill? Doubtful.

On paper, the team selection looked a pretty attacking one. In reality it was anything but. Jota and Jeremie Boga were so deep – practically clinging to their full back – it was difficult for them to effect the game in any way.

It was a must win game. And with a trip to Sunderland next up, back-to-back wins for the first time this season wasn’t outside the realms of possibility.

If today’s game was a must win, Sunderland is win or bust as far as Cotterill is concerned.

While the manager isn’t the sole cause of Blues’ problems, he also isn’t the solution, it seems.

Ian Holloway’s side are the second worst I’ve seen this season. Blues are the worst.

After a narrowly avoiding the drop last season, Blues are well and truly in the mire now.

Another 20,000 crowd turned out this afternoon and, simply, they don’t deserve the dross currently being served up.

Something has to give.
