Birmingham boss Chris Hughton says Championship success and an immediate return to the Premier League is the "absolute priority" this season.

The Blues are also involved in the group stages of the Europa League but that is not Hughton’s focus.

"The league is the absolute priority," he said ahead of Saturday's clash against Barnsley.

"Europe is something we're very, very excited to be in and really want to make progress in but our main priority has to be doing as well as we can in the league campaign."
