The home side took the lead on the half hour mark when David Cotterill sent over a corner from the right and an unmarked David Edgar powered a header home to make it 1-0.

Five minutes after the restart, Town were back on level terms when Paul Anderson sent over a free-kick from the right and Berra flicked the ball into the net at the far post.

But the home side got their noses back in front when Wes Thomas blocked a Cole Skuse pass in the Birmingham half and sent the ball to Clayton Donaldson away behind the Town defence. The striker slid it home to make it 2-1.

However, with three minutes of injury-time gone, the Blues levelled as Balint Bajner flicked on Tyrone Mings’ long ball, which found Anderson who crossed and Berra powered a diving header home.
