Birmingham responded when Zigic was sent clear by Chris Burke to slide home and then 17 minutes from time Curtis Davies met Jordon Mutch’s corner to set up a grandstand finish. The goal required to take the game into an extra-time was beyond them and Holloway’s great entertainers are off to get their suits measured.
