Blues manager Alex McLeish handed a debut to former Liverpool full-back Gregory Vignal in the pre-season friendly, which was watched by more than 10,000 supporters. McLeish started with a 4-5-1 formation, with Cameron Jerome playing as a lone striker. Lee Bowyer was on the receiving end of a few crunching tackles, while Keith Fahey had one of the best chances of the game, drawing a fine save from visiting goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar on 25 minutes. Joe Hart played the first half in goal but was replaced at the interval by Maik Taylor.
