A late goal by Liam Davis earned Northampton a 2-2 draw with a Birmingham XI at Sixfields, where Cameron Jerome and James McFadden scored. The Premier League side fielded a strong line-up including McFadden, Jerome and Lee Bowyer. However, it was the Cobblers who went ahead when Billy McKay held off Liam Ridgewell to poke the ball past keeper Maik Taylor. Jerome levelled for the Blues five minutes after half-time before McFadden put Alex McLeish's side ahead with a little over 20 minutes remaining. Davis, though, had the last word, scoring an equaliser with five minutes left.
