Birmingham City v Blackpool - live updates

Last updated: Saturday, 27 November, 2021, 16:52

  • LIVE: Birmingham City 1-0 Blackpool
  • Seasiders bidding for first win in five
  • Home side plagued by injuries and suspensions

Disappointment for Pool at St Andrew's despite another positive display.

Plenty of question marks over the home side's late winner too.

Four minutes added on.

Jerry Yates on for Gary Madine.

81 - GOAL BIRMINGHAM (1-0)

So, so unfortunate for the Seasiders.

A cross into the Blackpool box ricochets straight to substitute Lukas Jutkiewicz, who bundles the ball home off his thigh.

Neil Critchley has his hands on his head as Shayne Lavery goes to ground in the box but nothing is given.

Shayne Lavery replaces Owen Dale.

Josh Bowler combines with Owen Dale before firing a low effort towards goal, which Matija Sarkic turns behind.

Great chance.

Josh Bowler replaces Demetri Mitchell for the Seasiders.

Marvin Ekpiteta throws his body on the line to block Troy Deeney’s shot after the Birmingham skipper had played a quick one-two with Scott Hogan.

What a man.

A rare moment of promise for Birmingham as they play in dangerman Scott Hogan, who’s been quiet up to now.

The striker cuts the ball back past Marvin Ekpiteta and the goal opens up, but Hogan opts to play the ball across the face of goal where the Seasiders are able to scramble clear.
