1) It was the joint highest aggregate score at the Amex, equalling the 6-1 thrashing of Blackpool in April 2013. Birmingham have the distinction of scoring the most goals in a match at the Amex but still losing.
2) David Stockdale became the first Albion keeper to save a penalty in a competitive match since the Amex Stadium opened in July 2011.
3) Those responsible for pre-match entertainment no longer fade a verse of Sussex By The Sea as the teams come out.
4) Dale Stephens played his first match at home since April 2014. Stephens didn’t feature at all for Albion during Sami Hyypia’s reign due to injury.
5) The match sponsors chose two-goal Joao Teixeira as man of the match with five minutes of normal time and four minutes of injury time remaining. Although well deserved, the representatives of medical supply company Eschmann could have been left red-faced if Inigo Calderon, who also scored a brace, had notched a hat-trick late on.
