Flashback: United v Birmingham 2002

When Manchester United travel to St Andrews on Tuesday night it will be on the eight anniversary of the first meeting between the two clubs since Birmingham City’s first ever season in the Premier League. It took place at Old Trafford on December 28, 2002 with manager Steve Bruce facing Sir Alex Ferguson in the dugout for the first time since his departure as a United legend. He was to get no joy however as United took the points with a hard fought victory.
