3:00pm Thursday 13th March 2014 in Sport
Tom HEATON: Only fairly routine stuff in first half, beaten by decent strikes in the second 6

Jason SHACKELL: Headed out Burke's cross to deny Birmingham the chance of a third equaliser 7
Ben MEE: Had to be on ball against Burke to close down and intercept. Worked well with wide men 8
Ross WALLACE: Earned his first start since August and had a hand in the opener 7
Dean MARNEY: The definition of relentless, and got his rewards with another important goal 7
David JONES: Pressed persistently to keep Huws at bay in midfield. Goal came out of nothing 6
Scott ARFIELD: Covered a ridiculous amount of ground, giving defence runaround, Snatched at late chance 7
Sam VOKES: In the right place at the right time to score. 8
Danny INGS: Had to search for the ball at times and linked well with Trippier in right channel. Limped off 7

MAN OF THE MATCH
MICHAEL DUFF: Defender couldn't have done much more to secure a win for Clarets. Big contribution at both ends
VILLAIN Federico Macheda: Came off the bench to spark Birmingham fightback. Seemingly handled before making it 3-3 deep into stoppage time
KEY MOMENT Macheda's introduction. The home side had shown no end product beforehand
