Davis Earns Birmingham Derby Draw Against Villa

David Davis’ second-half strike prevented Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce from making a winning return to Birmingham City as the Second City derby ended 1-1 on Sunday afternoon.
Bruce and Villa had appeared set for a massive three points after Solihull-born Gary Gardner’s looping header, his first goal for the club, had opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark.

However, it was a goal by another local boy that denied Bruce the win as Davis levelled matters with a well-struck low shot 19 minutes from time to keep the Blues six points ahead of their city rivals.
