Game of the Day - Birmingham 3 v 2 Coventry 29/01

The F.A cup tie between Birmingham and Coventry was a great F.A Cup tie. Birmingham in their last game had to score two goals to secure there place in the Carling Cup final. And today, another come back was needed from Birmingham.

Birmingham rung the changes ahead of this tie. Blues manager Alex McLeish made 9 changes ahead of this tie against local rivals Coventry. Birmingham had to dig deep to get their victory, McLeish will be pleased his team avoided an embarrassing upset.

Match Rating 8/10 - A great come back by Birmingham. At times Birmingham were woeful especially in the first half. Its no surprise that Birmingham were two down by 30 minutes. But Birmingham managed to assert their authority on the game, especially in the second half. When at times, they played Conventry off the park. This game was nearly an upset for Birmingham, but they showed their resilience and managed to progress. A entertaining F.A Cup tie.

I'd just like to make clear, the links or videos are not owned by me, and are not in affiliation with The Football Front, they were found via google.
