Birmingham's five-match winning streak came to an end at Goodison Park as they were outplayed by Everton in a 1-1 draw.
Diniyar Bilyaletdinov's sixth-minute goal was all the hosts had to show for their early dominance and they were caught cold when Sebastian Larsson equalised with Birmingham's first shot of the match midway through the first half.
Everton continued to control the game after the interval but never really threatened to add a second.
