Life-long fan Craig Gardner scored his first Birmingham goal as Alex McLeish's side recovered to earn a 2-2 draw against Everton and preserve their six month unbeaten home record.

Everton, knocked out of the FA Cup by Blues at Goodison Park this season, had taken control with two goals in three minutes midway through the first half from Victor Anichebe and Ayegbeni Yakubu.

But Cameron Jerome's third goal in the last two games gave City a lifeline before Gardner's moment of glory following his £3million January move from local rivals Aston Villa.
