Birmingham City 1 Brighton & HA 2

St. Andrew’s… December 17th… 5.30pm

Attendance: 17,287

Ticket: £30 – Programme: £3

With only 1,800 available, I never realistically expected that there were ever going to be any tickets available for Burton, so another trip to St. Andrew’s to cast an eye over our main rivals….

Gianfranco Zola’s first game in charge ending in a late and undeserved defeat for Birmingham. Brighton playing poorly but winning. They’re going to push us hard…

The second game of the day, and a bit more like it…

A comfortable win, and if we’d taken our chances in the first half then it could have been rather more comfortable…

First Half: A Brighton Free Kick…

A goal in each half. The first, a header from Jamelle Lascelles, the second coming via an absolute screamer of a free kick from Jonjo Shelvey…

Three league wins in a row, nine points, and up to fourth. We appear to be beginning to overcome our early season wobbles…
