Birmingham 1 Newcastle 1
Although Birmingham have now gone five games without a win under Gianfranco Zola, their battling performance will have pleased the new manager. Newcastle, who made eight changes including leaving Dwight Gayle on the bench, failed to take advantage of Daryl Murphy’s early goal. It came at a heavy price after Aleksandar Mitrovic was stretchered off with an injury, later diagnosed as a deep cut. Lukas Jutkiewicz (right) equalised in the first half with his ninth of the season.
