Birmingham City

Cotterill's Birmingham stun Cardiff

Birmingham had lost 6-1 at Hull City prior to the international break, but looked like a different side on Friday.

Che Adams' excellent individual goal after 19 minutes, his first league strike of the season, proved decisive to give Cotterill, who officially took charge last week, an impressive start that moves the Blues out of the bottom three.

Leaders Cardiff failed to produce a shot on target, meaning Wolves can go top of the table with at least a draw against Aston Villa on Saturday, with Sheffield United also in striking distance.
