Phillips seals Blues comeback

Published Add your comment

Forgotten men Stuart Parnaby and Kevin Phillips were the heroes as Birmingham carved out another cup day to remember by coming from two down to beat local rivals Coventry 3-2 and reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Blues were on a high after booking their place in the Carling Cup final in midweek but they were brought back down to earth as Marlon King and Richard Wood put the visitors two up with 26 minutes gone.

David Bentley reduced the deficit before half-time with a stunning strike from 25 yards for his first Birmingham goal and, after a sustained spell of pressure, two goals in six minutes from Parnaby and Phillips midway through the second half completed the turnaround.
