Uefa Europa League: LIVE
Published : 20 Oct 2011 20:04:33
Football.co.uk bring you live text commentary from around the grounds with Spurs, Fulham, Celtic and Birmingham City featuring in Uefa Europa League.
Chris Wood scored a stunning winner in the 10th minute of stoppage time to secure Birmingham a thrilling Europa League Group H 2-1 win at Club Brugge.
The npower Championship side had trailed to Joseph Akpala's third-minute opener but roared on by more than 5,400 travelling fans they equalised through David Murphy's slick finish in the 26th minute.
Then, following more than six minutes of treatment for defender Pablo Ibanez after he was knocked unconscious in worrying fashion, Wood stole in at the near post to score a dramatic winner.
Joe Ledley's second-half header gave Celtic a deserved 1-1 Europa League draw against Rennes at the Route de Lorient, but once again the Hoops were left to count the cost of defensive woes.
On the half-hour mark, with the game evenly-matched, a long punt by home goalkeeper Benoit Costil was making its way harmlessly through to Fraser Forster, but Cha Du-ri helped it on then watched in horror as the ball slipped past the Hoops 'keeper and trundled into the net.
But Celtic fought back and in the 70th minute Ledley flicked a Charlie Mulgrew free-kick over Costil to give the visitors a draw, although they still remain bottom of Group I on goal difference.
Moussa Dembele's red card capped a disappointing night for Fulham as they lost 1-0 at Wisla Krakow.
The Cottagers spent the majority of the first period on the back foot after Ivica Iliev avoided an early red card for a high challenge on Brede Hangeland.
Fulham's feeling of injustice was strengthened just before the half-hour mark when Dembele was harshly sent off for a push on Gervasio Nunez.
The White Star continued to press and got their reward when David Biton fired the home side in front, before Osman Chavez was sent off late on in the clash.
