That is everything from me...head over to goal.com to see the post reaction from the game. Cheers. Matt.
Diouf's penalty is a total worldy, a must see for anyone who has missed it.
Full Time: To use the cliche a game of two halves, Birmingham looked comfortable at the break but a inspired performance from Warnock's men sees them meet Spurs in the FA Cup 4th Round.

Yellow Card Wade Elliott
Zigic is on.
Zigic getting warmed up. The big man could be Clark's answer to some of the lost balls into the box.
15 minutes to go and Birmingham have switched to a more attacking style. Leeds looked dangerous in the second half going forward so will have to watch out for quick counter.
Lovenkrands comes on and seconds later hits a shot low and hard but it is saved by Ashdown. Three up top now for The Blues.

Second half has started similar to the first. Both teams a bit sloppy.
Diouf has the ball in the corner but none of his tricks are working. Double teamed by two Birmingham players.
We are back underway. Let's hope for a slightly better second half, very dull first stage.
Leeds will look to use Diouf more and grab a equaliser. The winner gets the chance to play AVB's Spurs - decent prize.
Birmingham will be happy with the lead and will look to extend it early in the second half. Great goal from Wade Elliot to break the deadlock after a sloppy first few minutes. Nice performance from The Blues.
And there is the whistle. Birmingham 1-0 Leeds. (Elliot)
Gomis lacked any sort of strength and Lee Clark will possibly decide to change him for the second half. We are in the final minute of two mins stoppage time.
Referee pulls the play back with Birmingham in full flow. Bad decision.

Nathan Redmond straight into the wall. Missed opportunity.
Freekick to Birmingham City right on the edge of the box. Burke is brought down about 20 yards out.
No doubt that these games are now devalued with both sides not exactly desperate to find a goal. Leeds haven't even taken Becchio.
Nobody put their stamp on the game yet and it's a timid affair so far. Nice football from both sides but no dramas.
Wade Elliot plays the ball into the keepers arms, he was trying to pick out King but he messed it up big style.
