Bruce´s Blues back in Premiership slot

17 April 2007 23:32

LONDON (AFP) - Birmingham gave their hopes of automatic promotion to the Premiership a massive boost with a 2-1 win at relegation-threatened Leicester on Tuesday.

Early goals from Radhi Jaidi and Sebastian Larsson put Steve Bruce's side on track for a win that lifts them above Derby and into second place in the Championship, two points adrift of leaders Sunderland with three rounds of matches left to play.

Shaun Newton's free-kick gave Leicester hope seven minutes from time but the Foxes were unable to draw a line under a winless run that has now reached ten matches.

Leicester are now just two points clear of the relegation zone and, with a tough run-in, look to be in serious danger of dropping a division.

In Tuesday's other Championship match, Burnley notched up an impressive 3-0 win over Norwich, Andy Gray, Ade Akinbiyi and Wade Elliot finding the net.
