Numbers game: Birmingham City (A)

We break down the statistics from City's 3-0 win away to Birmingham City.

Kasey Palmer gave City a deserved half-time lead when he unleashed his own counter attack and found the bottom corner with a fine solo goal, followed by a celebration to mark the birth of his second son just days earlier.

That came after Birmingham twice hit the post through Scott Hogan, with the woodwork coming to City’s rescue after Jérémie Bela found space down the right on both occasions.

But City’s pressing then told when Antoine Semenyo closed down Neil Etheridge and the ball bounced back off City’s number 18 and into the open net.

Callum O’Dowda then added further daylight moments after coming off the bench, meeting Palmer's pass before rolling the ball past Etheridge for his first goal of the season.
