Birmingham 1-1 Plymouth

13 April 2009 04:05
Birmingham scraped a point having played much of the game with 10 men. Home goalkeeper Maik Taylor was sent off after 22 minutes when Jamie Mackie fell following a collision and Paul Gallagher scored from the penalty spot. Things worsened as Liam Ridgewell was taken off on a stretcher, but Franck Queudrue levelled when Romain Larrieu missed David Murphy's free-kick. After the break, Plymouth's Ashley Barnes had the ball in the net only to be ruled offside for the second time. Birmingham manager Alex McLeish: "I'm proud of the players, I'm really proud of them. "Their efforts, their spirit, their heart, the fire in their belly, they were absolutely knackered. "I think the game against Wolves with 10 men took its toll at the weekend(against Charlton), today we found another spark. "I think we got at least what we deserved, I'm disappointed with the time we had left when Franck scored that we didn't go on and win it."
