One Day In History - Birmingham City 1983-84



Teams: Birmingham City v Queens Park Rangers

Date: Saturday 14th April, 1984

Competition: Canon League Division One.

Venue: St. Andrews, Birmingham

Rangers went into the game off the back of two home wins over Southampton and Ipswich Town, sandwiching a valuable away point at West Ham United.

Birmingham had only won one game in their last five, with the recent narrow defeat at Manchester United. A win over local rivals Aston Villa going into the game would have been a definitive confidence boost going into the subsequent home game against QPR.

Rangers travelled to St. Andrews in trepidation as in 13 previous visits, the R`s had drawn three and lost 13 - having never won in England`s second city.

The R`s took the game 2-0 - Skipper Terry Fenwick`s 10th goal of the campaign added to an earlier John Gregory effort to seal a comfortable win for Rangers. It was also the only time that the R`s had put two past Birmingham at St. Andrews.

Despite the R`s first win in 14 attempts at St. Andrews there was some bad news on the horizon. Young midfielder Gary Waddock would miss the rest of the season courtesy of an ankle injury. In a tackle with Blues player Howard Gayle, Waddock suffered a broken ankle and would take no further part in the R`s drive for the top.

Birmingham failed to win again that season and were subsequently relegated, finishing third bottom. The R`s finished 5th, going on a six game winning string to consolidate their position at the higher end of the league.

Final Score: Birmingham City 0-2 Queens Park Rangers

Attendance: 10,255

QPR: Hucker, Neill, Dawes, Waddock (Feredy), Wicks, Fenwick, Micklewhite, Fillery, Allen, Stainrod, Gregory.
