Several Blues have picked up valuable experience out on loan this term. Here's a look back...
Saturday saw two Academy graduates come head-to-head for automatic promotion in League One.
John Lundstram's Doncaster Rovers scooped that prize in dramatic fashion, leaving Jake Bidwell and Brentford to traverse the tricky play-off system.

There was no involvement for Magaye Gueye again, as Stade Brest slipped to a 2-0 defeat at home to Stade Rennais.
That result keeps Gueye's loan side firmly in the dropzone, five points from safety and holding the worst goal difference in Ligue 1 with just four games left to play.
Earlier in the season, Ross Barkley enjoyed loan spells at two different clubs in the Championship, before returning to feature for Everton in the league run-in.
The 19-year-old made 12 starts and one substitute appearance for Sheffield Wednesday, netting four goals between September and November.
The Owls have not had the best of seasons and currently find themselves in danger of relegation heading into the last round of games, sitting just a point above the drop.
Barkley also spent one month at fellow Yorkshire outfit Leeds United, gaining four appearances under then-manager Neil Warnock.
With ex-Reading boss Brian McDermott recently appointed, the Elland Road side are mathematically safe and could finish as high as 10th in the table should results go their way on the final day.
Centre-half Johan Hammar was also able to benefit from the loan system, spending a month at Conference side Stockport County.
Whilst there, the Sweden Under-19 international played in six games before returning in mid-March, before the Hatters failed to survive and slipped down to the Conference North.
