'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Point From Goodison Trip

Birmingham edged out of the English Premier League relegation zone after securing a vital point in a 1-1 draw with mid-table Everton at Goodison Park.

Alex McLeish`s side climbed above West Ham on goal difference into 17th spot as they battle to beat the drop.

The Blues had a dream start when Chilean winger Jean Beausejour fired them into the lead on 17 minutes with a powerful header for his second goal in as many games.

However Dutch midfielder John Heitinga struck for Everton just before half-time, lashing in a firm shot that flew past Birmingham keeper Ben Foster after the Blues failed to deal with a corner.

Birmingham barely created anything thereafter although despite enjoying a wealth of possession Everton was unable to make their dominance count.

Everton striker Louis Saha was denied by a diving block from Blues midfielder Jordon Mutch while Jermaine Beckford also tested Foster with a close-range shot that was well saved by the Birmingham keeper.
