ZIGIC NETS POINT

Nikola Zigic, a second-half substitute, proved to be the vital link for Birmingham city, with the giant striker helping them to net a point against Blackpool.

Birmingham have made a lot of progress in the League this season, despite struggling with a lot of financial issues. Thankfully, these financial issues have not prevented them from making an impression on the pitch.

They opened the scoring in the match against Blackpool after 29th minute through Marlon King, though their lead didn't last long - Blackpool equalised through Crainey within two minutes.

BIRMINGHAM TIE UP ZIGIC DEAL

Nikola Zigic has landed himself a tall order - finding the goals to fire Birmingham City upwards after completing a £6million switch from Valencia.

The giant Serbia striker has agreed a four-year deal with the St Andrew's club, becoming Alex McLeish’s third signing of the close season.

Zigic stands at almost 6ft 8in - he doesn’t exactly dwarf Spurs’ Peter Crouch, but the England international has finally found someone in the Barclays Premier League to look up to. Albeit by less than an inch.
