Championship away attendances: How Birmingham City compare to Middlesbrough, Coventry and Hull City

Birmingham City took more than 3,000 fans to Leicester City last Saturday.

Birmingham City supporters have endured a topsy-turvy campaign and it’s not over yet.

Blues are second from bottom following their 1-0 defeat to Cardiff City on Wednesday night. Josh Bowler scored the only goal of the game as Birmingham failed to threaten Ethan Horvath in the Bluebirds goal.

Gary Rowett’s men have four games to turn their fortunes around and two of those games could be deemed favourable. They play already relegated Rotherham United at the New York Stadium on April 20 and then a week later it’s a relegation six-pointer against Huddersfield Town.

It’s tight at the bottom with just one point the difference between them and safety at the minute with the Terriers on 43 points. Anyone from Swansea City in 15th on 50 points to Birmingham in 23rd on 42 points could go down.

One constant factor in Birmingham’s season however has been in the supporters. Despite seeing their team go from chasing a play-off spot under John Eustace to battling relegation with their sixth manager of the campaign, they’ve continued to support their team.

Two consecutive trips to Yorkshire won’t be cheap but you can bet that the fans will want to be there backing their team. Birmingham on average take more than 2,000 supporters to each away match. 

The season is soon drawing to a close with four games left for most teams and thanks to those at The 72 we can see which teams are the best supported on the road. Here from the latest figures provided by the EFL website is how all 24 teams rank.
