Goals from David Davis and Che Adams secure Birmingham City win in latest pre-season outing

Birmingham City’s pre-season campaign continued with a 2-0 win at Oxford United.

Blues got the ideal start in the ninth minute when David Davis skipped past keeper Scott Shearer to slot home.

New signing David Stockdale was tested at the other end though as Rob Hall and Wes Thomas were both denied.

But the next goal was to go to Harry Redknapp’s men as Che Adams latched on to a Lukas Jutkiewicz pass to slide the ball home.

A much-changed side in the second half featured a number of trialists and it was the hosts who started the brighter, Hall forcing Tomasz Kuszczak to tip an effort onto the bar before the Blues keeper again denied the Oxford man with a smothering save.

Sub Eddie Afonso, an Angolan international, had the best second half chance for the visitors when he fired straight at the keeper.
