Wolves, Birmingham in FA Cup stalemate
Published : 07 Jan 2012 14:46:41
Birmingham and Wolves ground out a 0-0 draw to kick off a busy programme of FA Cup third round ties on Saturday.
Premier League outfit Wolves struggled to gain the upper hand against their Midlands rivals from the Championship before a sparsely populated St Andrews.
Wolves could have snatched victory in the last minute of injury time only to be denied by a superb double save from Birmingham goalkeeper Colin Doyle.
Doyle tipped a curling Matt Jarvis shot onto the post and then parried away Steven Fletcher's follow-up shot on the rebound as Birmingham clung on for a replay.
Liverpool had got the third round under way on Friday with a 5-1 victory over Oldham at Anfield.
In other matches on Saturday, League Two Cheltenham travel to high-flying Tottenham dreaming of an upset while non-league Tamworth head to Goodison Park to face Everton.
