Dale Stephens scored the only goal of the game as Charlton Athletic came to St Andrews and took all three points on Saturday.
The win means the Addicks have now gone five games without a defeat built on a defence that is turning into one as tight as they come.
Blues never looked like they were going to chalk up much in this game although they did have a Dan Burn goal ruled out for a push.
And in the second half Tom Adeyemi looked to have got Birmingham going but his effort was cleared off the line by Michael Morrison.
Darren Randolph was the busiest of the two keepers, he made several good saves to keep the visitors at bay but on 56 minutes he managed to save a Cameron Stewart shot and then when the ball fell to Johnnie Jackson, he saw his effort blocked, but this time Randolph’s luck ran out and the ball deflected to Stephens who could not miss.
City flew back at Charlton and could have levelled through Lee Novak but his vicious shot was parried away by Hamer.
After the game, assistant-manager Terry McDermott said: “Too many of our players just didn`t turn up today. Our decision making was poor.
“We`re in a bad position just now but hopefully we won`t be for long.”
