BIRMINGHAM CITY 0 STOKE CITY FC 0
Manager Pulis reverted to 4-4-2 formation,and left new signing Whitehead on the bench.
Not at all a memorable game.For long periods Stoke were on top without converting their superiority into goals and points.
James Beattie left the field early with what could turn out to be a serious leg injury.His replacement Kitson made a useful contribution.
Stoke's Man of the Match was Ryan Shawcross,dominating in defence,against a poor Birmingham side.
Sorensen in goal had little to do apart from one fine save in the second half.
