A judge has dismissed a bid to wind up Sky Bet Championship club Birmingham.

Judge Sebastian Prentis analysed the club’s case at an Insolvency and Companies Court hearing in London on Wednesday after being told that the club had a tax debt.

Lawyers representing HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) had made an application to wind up.

No detail of the amount Birmingham, who are 14th in the Championship, had owed emerged at the hearing.
