Millwall   1 - 4   Birmingham

Birmingham celebrate a goal at the New Den
Matt Derbyshire's two goals were his first for the Blues since August

Birmingham moved into the FA Cup fourth round after teaching Millwall how to finish in a lively game at the New Den.

Home striker Steve Morison missed a one-on-one just before Matt Derbyshire clinically lobbed in after 17 minutes.

David Murphy whipped home a free-kick 10 minutes later before Derbyshire dinked in deftly just before half-time.

Morison missed a penalty in the second period but, after Blues substitute Cameron Jerome headed in low, Danny Schofield lashed in a late consolation.

For most of the match, Championship club Millwall had more possession and more chances than their Premier League opponents.

But an experimental Birmingham line-up rode their luck and made the most of their opportunities in front of goal.

Impressive Millwall midfielder James Henry served notice of intent early on with a fine long-range shot which was saved well by Birmingham keeper Maik Taylor.

Jack Smith then bisected the away defence with a 40-yard ball - but Morison, the Lions' top scorer this season, screwed his shot wide after racing through.

Millwall were immediately made to pay. Keeper David Forde rushed out to stop Derbyshire after he was played in down the right by Jean Beausejour's superb pass.

But Forde could not snatch the ball from the striker's feet and from 20 yards out Derbyshire coolly turned to chip the ball home.

Tony Craig hacked down Derbyshire on the edge of the box after 27 minutes and from the free-kick Murphy bent the ball around a packed wall to double Birmingham's advantage.

Henry gave Birmingham another warning with a 30-yard volley that went just wide.

Millwall then thought they had pulled a goal back - but Morison's tap-in was ruled out for offside.

The Lions' defence backed off before half-time, allowing Craig Gardner to put in Derbyshire - and he made no mistake from eight yards to make it 3-0.

Birmingham captain Scott Dann was adjudged to have pushed the energetic Henry in the 52nd minute, but Morison's weak penalty was saved by Taylor.

Dann then blocked a Henry shot on the line and Neil Harris skied the rebound while, at the other end, Beausejour crashed a 20-yard strike off the bar.

Large parts of the home support headed for the exit when Jerome, on for the disappointing Nikola Zigic, headed home Keith Fahey's cross with 18 minutes left.

But, in injury time, Millwall substitute Schofield steadied himself in the box before firing past Taylor.
