Leeds lost for the first time since the arrival of Brian McDermott as they continue to struggle on their travels.

Birmingham won 1-0 with a goal from one of his former players at Reading scoring the only goal of the game.

Hayden Mullins was quickest to react and prod home from close range after Paddy Kenny could only parry a Nathan Redmond shot.

Leeds rarely threatened Jack Butland in the Birmingham goal. Michael Tonge saw an effort tipped over in the first half by Butland and Rodolph Austin forced him into a full-length dive in the second half but it was a fairly low-key game.

Ravel Morrison and Nathan Redmond caused Leeds problems with their pace and Morrison came closest to opening the scoring in the first half when his effort hit the crossbar.

Ross McCormack saw his free-kick skim the top of the crossbar in the second half before Mullins scored the only goal of the game.

In the tightest of championships this season, it was an afternoon that ruled both clubs out of any chance of a play-off place as well as relegation on the same day.
