The FA Cup - Fourth Round

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Birmingham City

By Emma SandersBBC Sport

Birmingham City came from behind to force a replay against Huddersfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to Lukas Jutkiewicz's equaliser.

Steve Mounie headed in Florent Hadergjonaj's cross early in the first half to give Huddersfield the lead.

Ex-Huddersfield loanee Jutkiewicz then pounced on Michael Hefele's mistake to fire past Joel Coleman, and also had an effort disallowed for offside.

Joe Lolley nearly won it for Town in stoppage time as the hosts dominated.

However, the substitute fluffed his effort from nine yards out.

Mounie was denied by David Stockdale at his near post in the first half and he could have scored from a corner shortly after Jutkiewicz's equaliser, but his strike flew over the crossbar.

Chris Lowe and Collin Quaner also had chances for the hosts as Birmingham failed to record a shot on target until after the break.

Jutkiewicz's tame effort from six yards out had been Birmingham's best chance before the striker - who was loaned to the Terriers by Everton in 2009 - eventually levelled.

Birmingham boss Steve Cotterill made seven changes to the side which drew 1-1 at Preston in the Championship - and it paid off as they came through unscathed ahead of their crucial relegation battle with Sunderland on Tuesday.

Huddersfield have won only twice in their last nine matches, and only once in January - their FA Cup third round victory against Bolton.
