Match Commentary

90' Second half was disappointing after a promising opening period. If Sunderland where the best team in the first-half, Birmingham probably edged it towards the end. They will now go to St. Andrews to do it all again. 1-1 the final score and that is just about a fair reflection of the game. Nothing special as a game but two fantastic goals.
90' Full time whistle is blown and the game ends all square
90' Cisse slides in wildly on Arca, catching his standing leg. Play goes on but the referee returns to the player to give him his second yellow card. Cisse came on in the 80th minute, got booked in the 85th and then was sent off in stoppage time. What a contribution!
