Birmingham City have snatched all three points with a late winner against Club Brugge in the Europa League.

The Belgian side were ahead after only two minutes when Joseph Akpala struck at the near post past Boaz Myhill.

In an open first half, the Blues grabbed their equaliser on 25 minutes after David Murphy had snuck past his marker to tuck home.

Adam Rooney had two good opportunities to put the visitors ahead at the break, but he flashed one narrowly over while the other was poked wide.

The second half was marred by City defender Pablo Ibanez being stretchered off after he clashed heads with Joseph Akpala.

Ten minutes of added time were given as a result of the injury, and Chris Wood got on the end of Marlon King's cross to guide the ball home in the 97th minute and put his side top of Group H.
