Pic Special: Newcastle 2 Birmingham 1

The main incidents occured towards the end of the first half, but there was plenty to talk about after Newcastle beat Birmingham on Saturday.

Those three points mathematically ensured United's top flight status in their first season back in the Barclays Premier League, but Alex McLeish's Blues remain in the relegation mix.

Shola Ameobi put The Magpies ahead from the penalty spot after Liam Ridgewell was sent off for handball on the goal-line, then Steven Taylor headed home a second.

Former Newcastle midfielder Lee Bowyer pulled one back on the stroke of the interval, but Alan Pardew's side would have won by a far bigger margin had Birmingham keeper Ben Foster not pulled off a strong of fine saves. Barry Pells brings us this gallery.
