Chris Burke hit a dramatic injury-time winner as Birmingham beat struggling Burnley 2-1 to gain ground on their npower Championship promotion rivals.

City, who began the night with three games in hand over most of the teams around them, had led through Jean Beausejour's second-minute strike and would have been winning more comfortably had Marlon King not been guilty of an alarming miss.

City looked like being made to pay for their profligacy again as Marvin Bartley's strike early in the second half put Burnley level only for Burke to pop up with an injury-time winner.
