Birmingham 1 Aston Villa 1

Aston Villa moved out of the relegation zone after coming from behind to earn a point from an engrossing derby with fellow strugglers Birmingham.
The home side took the lead early in the second half through Roger Johnson's close-range volley.
But Villa hit back through James Collins, who hammered home a flick-on from Gabriel Agbonlahor inside the box.
Villa hit the woodwork four times but Birmingham also had clear chances in a game either could have won.
In truth, a point does little to help either side in their quest to pull clear of the relegation zone but the psychological edge of pegging their rivals back and also exiting the bottom three - where they had languished for the first time since 2003 - will be a major boost for Villa.
