Midlands Derby! Birmingham’s U21s beat Aston Villa U21s in 3-2 thriller [Videos]

Although fans will have to wait at least another season for a league meeting between Birmingham and Aston Villa, there are still Midlands derbies to be savoured.

The U21 sides of Birmingham and Aston Villa met on Tuesday to compete in the Lord Mayor’s Next Generation Cup, a match which will help raise funds for chosen local charities.

But there was no charity on the pitch as Birmingham triumphed in a hotly contested game 3-2.

You can see the pick of the goals below, with a strike from Reece Brown, a young midfielder not to be confused with Wes Brown’s younger sibling, and Demarai Gray helping the Blues to victory.
