Boss hails Cam strike.

CAMERON Jerome's leveller - his fourth goal of the season - was saluted by Alex McLeish.

Jerome began and finished off a startling move after Blues cleared a Burnley corner.

The manager commented: "It was an excellent goal, a classic breakaway goal full of quality. It was the best move of the match by far, but the frustrating thing was that we didn't produce more of the same throughout the game."

Burnley manager Owen Coyle felt his side were much the better side, and should have had a penalty as they pressed late on.

Wade Elliott's cross was blocked by Lee Carsley, who was in close attention, although the linesman flagged immediately for a corner.

Coyle said: "The passing and pace we played at was really pleasing, and we were caught with a sucker punch. I think Alex McLeish will be pleased with the point." McLeish added: "I would have liked to have thought we could carry on from the excellent performance against QPR, play sparkling football, entertain the fans and head back to Birmingham with a few goals and the points but, as you can see from the Preston result (who came from behind to beat Reading), reality bites in this Championship."
