Blues through to next round of League Cup
Quincy Owusu-Abeyie got himself on the score sheet in his debut game for Blues last night as Birmingham beat Wycombe 4-0 in the Carling Cup at Adams Park.
The youngster who has arrived on loan from Spartak Moscow wailed the ball home from 18 yards to make it 4-0 four minutes from time to complete a Blues rout.
Also on the score sheet was Nafti who opened the scoring with his first goal for the club since joining in 2005.
Garry O`Connor set Nafti up and he drove home from 20 yards.
Wycombe could have pulled level just before the hour mark but a good save from Colin Doyle denied Scott McGleish.
But in the last half hour Birmingham went for it, O`Connor was involved again as he set Larsson free to score the second and then the Swedish international did a bit of setting up himself when he crossed for Jerome to add the third.
Owusu-Abeyie then wrapped up the scoring and Blues easily progressed to the next round.
