Birmingham boss Chris Hughton watched his side squander a 3-1 half time lead at West Ham to draw with the play off rivals. But he was not too disappointed.
City looked like they had done more than enough to have earned the full three points by the time the half-time whistle was blown, but the Hammers decided to have a late rally that resulted in Vaz Te equalising in the last minute of normal time.
Jordon Mutch struck first with an impressive solo goal for the visitors, bamboozling Abdoulaye Faye with some trickery before firing a shot past an unsighted Rob Green.
And Blues doubled their advantage moments later when Marlon King beat the offside trap before keeping his cool to slot home.
Vaz Te headed in his fourth goal in as many games in first half stoppage time.
However, Birmingham went straight up the other end and restored their two goal advantage when Chris Burke fired a volley into the ground which somehow bounced into Green's net.
Carlton Cole pulled one goal back before Vaz Te lashed in the equaliser from the spot which was awarded after Henri Lansbury's shot hit Burke's arm.
Hughton said: 'It's a good point here, you can only get the wins that you need to get and get the points that you need to get and you hope that some of the other results go for you,' he said.
'And I think the results of late have been good for us but whether we get into that top six or not won't be down to other teams it will be down to us. If we can keep the momentum we've got at the moment hopefully we'll be OK.
'It was tough to keep it going for 90 minutes but we are a team that have come here and scored three goals. There won't be many that do that this season.
'I've only got good things to say about my team and I thought we were excellent and well worthy of the draw - it's not easy playing two games in two games.'
