Birmingham 3-1 Man City

Mar 30, 2008

Two goals from Argentine Mauro Zarate gave 10-man Birmingham victory and a huge boost in their relegation fight at the expense of Manchester City.

He clipped in Franck Queudrue’s pass on 40 minutes and then rifled home from the edge of the area after the break.

Elano pulled one back with a penalty after Queudrue fouled Benjani and was shown the red card.

But Sun Jihai conceded a penalty to the home side and Gary McSheffrey secured the points from the spot.

With so many of the Premier League’s strugglers bunched up at the bottom it was vital for Blues to get a win, and it would have been a massive injustice had they failed to do so.
