Defender delighted to bag a brace and insists Blues showed great character to grab an injury time point at St Andrew's

Christophe Berra has labelled St Andrew’s as his ‘lucky ground’ after he scored for the second season running to ensure Town left with a last gasp point from the West Midlands.

The Scottish centre-back twice cancelled out Birmingham strikes, firstly from David Edgar and secondly from Clayton Donaldson, as his header in injury time gave Town a share of the spoils as the match ended 2-2.

“St Andrew’s is quickly turning into my lucky ground, after scoring here last season as well as finding the net twice tonight,” beamed Christophe after the game whilst speaking to the official Club website.

“I don’t think we played particularly well in the first-half and Birmingham made things difficult for us but I thought in the second-half we were much the better side.

“We showed great character to keep going and grab a goal and it’s important that we go into the Norwich game at the weekend with something to show from tonight.”

The defender was in the right place at the right time on both occasions this evening to score twice- despite some claims from the dressing-room saying he didn’t get a touch on the first goal.

“Some of the boys were trying to say I never touched the first goal but I definitely did and it’s certainly my goal, no matter what they say!” Christophe explained.

“The second goal was a really good team goal as Balint [Bajner] has flicked on Tyrone’s [Mings] ball forward and Ando has done superbly well to cross into the box and put the ball into the danger area.

“Thankfully I’ve managed to get across my man and head into the corner and it was great to celebrate in front of the fans, who were again superb in making such a long trip on a Tuesday night.

“I like to go up front towards the end if we are chasing a goal and thankfully I’ve managed to justify that decision and it really gives us something to build on going into a huge game on Saturday.”
