Blues through to next round of League Cup

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.

Wycombe: Young, Crooks (Ashton 46), Antwi, Johnson, Woodman, Mousinho, Doherty (Rice 75), Spence, Zebroski, Grant, McGleish (Vieira 71).

Subs Not Used: Shearer, Sutton, Duncan, Christon.

Birmingham: Doyle, Parnaby, Martin Taylor, Ridgewell, Murphy (Queudrue 46), Larsson, Carsley, Nafti, McSheffrey (Owusu-Abeyie 63), Phillips (Jerome 70), O'Connor.

Subs Not Used: Maik Taylor, McFadden, Mutch, Bent.

Att: 2,735

Ref: Andy D'Urso (Essex).
