Midfielder David Cotterill lit up an otherwise dour SkyBet Championship encounter with a stunning free-kick to earn Birmingham a 1-0 win against Huddersfield.

The swerve on Cotterill's 70th-minute effort appeared to deceive Huddersfield keeper Alex Smithies.

Blues striker Clayton Donaldson was fouled on the right edge of the box by Anthony Gerrard and Cotterill stepped up for the set-piece.
