On-loan Birmingham striker Christian Benitez scored his first home goal as Alex McLeish's side topped the 50-point mark for the campaign with a 2-1 victory against already-relegated Burnley.
The win preserved City's eight-month unbeaten record at St. Andrew's and they are on course to finish in the top 10 after being written off pre-season by pundits and bookmakers as relegation certainties.
An own goal from Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen broke the deadlock and then came Benitez's moment of glory four minutes before the interval to wrap up the points. Steven Thompson scored a late consolation effort for the Clarets.
