Coach: Steve Bruce (since December 2001) Premiership Record: 5-14-5 Rank: 18th, 20 points Last Result: 2-0 loss vs. Arsenal, February 4 Streak: Lost 1 Next Game: at West Ham United, February 13 FA Cup Last Result: 4th Round Replay 2-1 win vs. Reading, February 7 Next Game: 5th Round at Stoke City, February 19 Birmingham remain at least five points from safety after a 2-0 loss versus Arsenal. Emmanuel Adebayor and Thierry Henry scored for the Gunners, and Birmingham had striker Emile Heskey sent off late on following a second booking. Coach Steve Bruce commented: "I thought we started brightly and got at them but Arsenal showed that little bit of quality. But we were disappointed with the second goal which we could have kept out. I can understand Emile's frustration because, if you watch the two challenges, he is looking at the ball on both occasions." However, Heskey subsequently accepted an FA charge of improper conduct for failing to leave the pitch promptly and gesturing at the referee. In midweek, Birmingham did at least advance to the fifth round of the FA Cup with goals by Mikael Forssell and Julian Gray either side of an equaliser by Reading's Stephen Hunt. On Monday, Birmingham will be away to in-form West Ham United who have their last six games in all competitions. Two months ago Birmingham lost 2-1 at home to the Hammers.
