Birmingham City drew for the second time in a week as they once again let a lead slip with Huddersfield Town scoring with eight minutes left on the clock to cancel out David Cotterill’s first goal since the middle of September.

The home side were largely dominant throughout the game but it was Gary Rowett’s side who broke the deadlock at the John Smith’s stadium with just over a third of the second half left to play.

Substitute and on loan Sunderland winger Will Buckley won a freekick 25 yards out and Cotterill stepped up to thrash home an absolute beauty of a goal which left Jed Steer stranded in goal.

However, Blues could only hold onto the lead for nine minutes when the home side equalised through Joel Lynch. The defender scored his second goal of the season when he controlled Sean Scannell’s miscued shot and prodded the ball past the on rushing Tomasz Kuszczak, who has now failed to keep a clean sheet in his last five games.

I spoke to Vital Birmingham writer Luke Turner after the game and he shared with me his player ratings following a hard fought 1-1 draw with the Terriers.

Kuszczak – 6

Caddis – 5

Morrison – 7 and his Man of the Match.

Shotton – 6

Grounds – 5

Davis – 5

Gleeson – 5

Cotterill – 7

Fabbrini – 5

Donaldson – 6

Lafferty – 5

Substitutes: Solomon-Otabor (4), Buckley (6), Robinson (N/A).
