FT - Blues 1 (Jutkiewicz 13) Brentford 1 (Pinnock 17)

Jukey's early goal was cancelled out by Pinnock's leveller soon after as Blues were held by the Bees at St. Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium this afternoon.

90+1 - Second sub.

90 - Four minutes of added on time.

86 - Appeals for a Blues penalty are waved away by referee Stephen Martin. The ball hits the hand of Pinnock to the right of the area... that was a definite handball. Could see it from here.

πŸ”΅ 1-1 🐝

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

85 - Blues are set to counter forward with Gary Gardner, he strides into the Bees half before getting wiped out by Norgaard. That was cynical. The Brentford man goes into the book with a yellow card.

83 - Blues survive a goal-mouth scramble. Fosu hits the post before it bounces around the six-yard box, Gardner and then Jutkiewicz somehow manage to get it clear. Dogged defending!

80 - Great save by Camp to deny Marcondes, the Blues 'keeper does fantastically to keep out the effort at his near post.

Ten to go!

75 - First change for Blues.

➑️ Crowley
⬅️ Hogan

74 - Bela is cynically brought down. Blues have a free-kick deep inside the Bees half. Bellingham takes it but as the ball is played in the linesman had his flag up for offside.

71 - Inside the final twenty! 🀞

πŸ”΅ 1-1 🐝

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

64 - Hogan tries to get a shot on goal from inside the box, Pinnock makes the challenge as he went to shoot. Hogan took a knock there, looked to get back on his feet, but has gone down again. The Blues striker is receiving treatment.

61 - Clarke-Salter makes a tactical foul as the Bees look to break forward from a loose pass by Pedersen. The defender is given a yellow card.

58 - Colin is booked.

πŸ”΅ 1-1 🐝

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

54 - Roberts' long throw from the right is dropped by Raya, Clarke-Salter is there but doesn't get a good connection. A chance for Blues there.

35 - Bela stands over the free-kick, which is about thirty yards out, but his effort is straight into the hands of Raya.

πŸ”΅ 1-1 🐝

34 - Substitute Yearwood is the first player to get a yellow card this afternoon, taking Gary Gardner clean out as the midfielder ran towards the box.

πŸ”΅ 1-1 🐝

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

31 - Bela's corner finds Roberts at the back-post, Hogan tries to get to it as the ball bounces goalwards, but the header is just out of reach of the striker, Raya saves it and Brentford clear.

πŸ”΅ 1-1 🐝

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

27 - Marcondes' shot from inside the area is blocked well by Clarke-Salter. The Bees have the corner but Blues clear our lines and the score remains level.

GOAL - Blues 1 Brentford 1 (Pinnock 17)

The visitors equalise.

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

13 - Brilliant play by Gary Gardner down the left channel gives Jutkiewicz the simplest task of sliding in to slot the ball home from three yards out.

GOOAAALLL - Blues 1 (Jutkiewicz 13) Brentford 0

JUKEY PUTS US AHEAD! 😍

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

7 - OFF THE POST! Bellingham has the ball just on the edge of the box, he shifts it onto his right and takes aim with a curling effort, which cannons straight off the bottom right-hand post. So close to the opener there!

6 - The wind already playing havoc here, Roberts' long throw into the box is headed away to Colin on the outside of the area, he heads it back towards goal and the ball on the bounce is swept high by the wind, nearly catching Raya out.
