Birmingham have funding to complete season

The Football League has met with representatives from Ernst & Young, the receivers of the parent company that owns Championship club Birmingham City, reports BBC Sport. Birmingham International Holdings Limited went into receivership earlier this month.

In a statement, the League said it had received confirmation that "no funding will be withdrawn from Birmingham City" and "sufficient funds are available to ensure that the club can complete the 2014-15 season."

It also said the receivers did not believe their appointment in Hong Kong should be considered as an "insolvency event" under Football League regulations, which could lead to a deduction of 10 points.
