Gardner sinks Rovers

21 August 2010 07:00
Craig Gardner struck twice and Ben Foster boosted his England credentials with a brilliant display of goalkeeping as Birmingham came from behind to beat Blackburn 2-1 at St Andrew's. After a dire first half, Morten Gamst Pedersen was given a golden chance to open the scoring in the 50th minute when Nikola Zigic fouled Christopher Samba in the box but Foster pulled off a superb save. Four minutes later the visitors were ahead as Steven Nzonzi headed in a corner. But Gardner turned the game around, converting a brilliant James McFadden pass in the 57th minute and then beating Paul Robinson from 30 yards for the winner with 19 minutes left.
