Korie provides his views on the FA Cup win over Hull

Korie Davey provides his views on Tuesday nights FA Cup Victory.

Birmingham City played Hull in the Third-round replay at St. Andrew’s on Tuesday evening. In the early stages of the first half Blues had a few chances to take the lead through the likes of Burke and Anderson.  

Unfortunately for Mowbray’s side the game would take an unexpected turn as Hull City’s Jason Eyenga-Lokilo was found in marked in the box to slot it into the back of the Birmingham net.  

The Blues then tried to search for an equaliser but Hull City keeper Matt Ingram made an absolutely amazing save to deny Manny Longelo the opportunity to make things level going into the half time break.  

Half-time: Birmingham City 0-1 Hull  

The second half started a bit robustly for the Blues as nothing seemed to be coming their way. The 60th minute was on approach and Blues still couldn’t find a way to grab an equaliser Hull were still pushing to double their advantage in B9.  

Mowbray made substitutions shortly after with Romell Donovan, Keshi Anderson, Oliver Burke, Gary Gardner and Manny Longelo all Departing for the arrivals of Tyler Roberts, Koji Miyoshi, Jay Stansfield, Siriki Dembele & Ivan Sunjic.  

2 minutes after the introduction of the substitutions Myoshi cannoned an effort at Matt Ingram but Stansfield was there to pounce on the rebound unleashing a shot into the roof of the net to level the score at St. Andrews. Birmingham carried the momentum after their goal with a major chance falling to Siriki Dembele, but he was unsuccessful in his efforts to put his team in front.  

With 6 minutes of injury time added on both sides were still pushing to give their teams the lead and win the game and then in the 4th minute of injury time a last gasp opportunity arose for Blues to win the game with Stansfield in possession of the ball finding Myoshi. Who miskicked the ball at first but then was the fastest to react and he poked the ball into the bottom corner sealing the Victory for Blues and Tony Mowbray gaining his first win as Birmingham City boss.  

They will now face Midlands rivals Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in the Fourth Round that will be played on Saturday 27th of January 2024.
