Gary McSheffrey ended his scoring drought as Birmingham survived a brave second-half fightback by their League Two opponents to reach the third round of the Carling Cup with a 2-1 win.

The former Coventry player added to Blues striker Garry O´Connor´s opener with his first goal since netting against Stoke in February.

Blues dominated the opening half but they were left hanging on after the impressive Theo Robinson had reduced the arrears with 18 minutes remaining.
