Birmingham fans invade pitch at Burton while also trying to mock Derby in chant

Birmingham City fans took to invade the pitch at Burton Albion while also trying to mock Derby County in a chant on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues claimed the Bass Charity Vase for the first time since 1928 after beating the Brewers 2-1 at the Pirelli Stadium just two weeks until the new EFL season begins.

The Championship outfit, tipped for relegation, were presented with the trophy at the end of the game by Bass Vase President Dave Mellor with the Man of the Match award sponsored by Trent Trophies was presented to Ryan Woods.

Four minutes in, the Brewers won a free kick which was taken by Davis Keillor-Dunn, finding the head of Hughes who had space but couldn’t get any real power on the attempt.

A minute later, Troy Deeney curled a right foot shot just over Ben Garratt’s goal after a free-flowing Birmingham move.

Scott Hogan had time and space after nine minutes but skewed his shot wide of the upright.

The 18th minute saw a low curling shot by Keillor-Dunn take Neil Etheridge by surprise, but the Birmingham keeper grabbed it at the second attempt.

The Brewers best chance of the first half saw Hughes play a ball down the line for Jonny Smith to pull back. Ahadme got a header on goal which Etheridge parried away. Keillor-Dunn tapped the rebound into the net but was flagged offside.

Smith tested Etheridge on the 22nd minute with a shot from 25 yards as the Brewers looked the more likely team to break the deadlock at that point.

Deeney looked set to score after 27 minutes but was caught off balance in the six-yard box and fluffed the shot.

After 37 minutes Juninho Bacuna’s crisp volley was on target but was deflected wide for a corner but Birmingham capitalised when the ball was swung in from indecision in the Brewers defence which allowed George Hall to open the scoring.

It should have been 2-0 five minutes later with Deeney rising highest at the far post to produce a firm header on goal only for Garratt to claw it away at the last second.

Taylor made decent contact with a header from a 50-minute corner but couldn’t direct it on goal.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson needed treatment on 55 minutes and was replaced, before a block from Hughes denied Jordan James on 70 minutes after Hogan pulled the ball back for the shot.

The Brewers equalised on the 74th minute from a corner with Hamer heading home while Birmingham were still adjusting to all the changes.

A minute later Castro rounded the keeper but was driven wide and sent the ball wide.

Hughes cleared off the line after Odin Bailey’s shot seemed on it’s way for the net.

On 84 minutes, Burton won a free kick on the edge of the box and Lakin curled it over the wall but also well over the bar.

With the clock running down, Sam Cosgrove sealed victory for the Blues with a stunning low drive into the bottom corner of the net.
