West Bromwich Albion reserves got the better of Birmingham City with a 3-2 victory at Damson Parkway in the Barclays Premiership Reserve League North last night.
Rob Elvins put the visitors in front on nine minutes with a powerful header but within 60 seconds Blues were level when Neil Kilkenny's through ball found DJ Campbell who finished well.
Blues took the lead on 22 minutes when Camp-bell's cross had Luke Daniels in trouble. The ball fell to Oliver Allen, whose shot was deflected on to the bar but he followed up to score at the second attempt.
A superb 20-yard free-kick by Rob Davis on 26 minutes got Albion back on level terms.
A mix-up in the Blues defence presented Chris Humphrey with the easiest of opportunities on 56 minutes that proved to be the winning goal. n A Stephen Gleeson goal after 57 minutes won the three points for Wolver-hampton Wanderers against Bolton Wanderers in their Reserve League match in Lancashire last night.
Gleeson took aim from 25 yards and fired left-footed past Poland under 18 international keeper Przemyslaw Kazimerczak to score the only goal of the game.
