Redmond sinks Pompey

Published Add your comment

Nathan Redmond enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a superbly-taken late volley which fired Birmingham up to third in the npower Championship thanks to a 1-0 win over Portsmouth.

The highly-rated 17-year-old substitute was brought on to bring much-needed life to City's attacking play and he did just that, with his 86th-minute swivelled volley seeing off a Portsmouth side who had appeared set for a battling point.

Fellow promising youngster Jordon Mutch had not long gone closest for City with a 25-yard strike which hit the outside of a post, but Blues, who have now found the net 20 times in the final nine minutes of games, produced yet another late show to move within two points of the automatic promotion places.
