Blues Draw At Battling Ipswich

Blues Draw At Battling Ipswich

Birmingham could have made certain of a play-off place at Ipswich last night, but despite taking the lead, they were pegged back to a 1-1.

The points looked to be in the bag after Chris Burke had given the visitors the lead in first half stoppage time, the home fans must have thought it was going to be one of those days for the host.

Before the goal they had the best of the play and the better chances, they just had a problem finishing those chances.

In the second half Jay Emmanuel- Thomas gave City a warning of what was to come when he saw an effort come back off the crossbar, but his reward for his efforts came in the 75th minute when he finished from close range.

That made it three draws on the bounce for City who really should have had their place in the play offs booked by now.
