On This Day: Brown and Morley snatch Birmingham victory from jaws of defeat


West Ham United looked destined to be heading for a damaging Division One defeat when Andy Saville put Birmingham City into an early lead at St Andrew's on this day in 1993.

Billy Bonds' promotion-chasing Hammers had failed to win either of their previous two matches to drop closer to the chasing pack, losing at Oxford United before drawing at home with Millwall.

A third game without a win would have further dented the Irons' hopes of going up to the Premier League, but two goals in the final three minutes secured a vital come-from-behind victory.

First, Kenny Brown fired home from outside the penalty area, before Kevin Keen crossed and Trevor Morley converted past Blues goalkeeper Bob Catlin to snatch all three points.

West Ham would go on to win five of their final six matches to secure promotion on the final day.
