Jesse Lingard was again superb for Birmingham City as they defeated Millwall 4-0 in the Championship on Tuesday night.

Jesse Lingard was again superb for Birmingham City as they defeated Millwall 4-0 in the Championship on Tuesday night.

The 20-year old forward, on loan from Manchester United, followed on from his recent four-goal performance against Sheffield Wednesday by scoring in the Brum’s rout at St Andrews.

Lingard saw his 10th minute penalty saved by Lions keeper David Forde but bounced back by creating plenty of chances throughout.

The England U21 international added to the scoresheet in the 89th minute when he headed home Chris Burke’s cross from close range after David Murphy’s earlier double and Tom Adeyemi’s 68th minute goal put the home side in the box seat.

Lingard, who is on a month’s loan, has now netted five goals in three league outings for Lee Clark’s Birmingham following last season’s short spell with Leicester City.
