Huddersfield Town piled more pressure on Birmingham City's manger, Trevor Francis, by beating the Blues 3-0 at the McAlpine Stadium in the Nationwide First Division last night.

Marcus Stewart, Huddersfield's pounds 1.2m summer signing from Bristol Rovers, set up the first goal for Rob Edwards and scored the second before suffering an ankle injury. Paul Dalton, his replacement, added the third as Birmingham, second from bottom, could not contain a vibrant Huddersfield side.

Bobby Mihailov, who plays in the First Division for Reading, was the hero as 10-man Bulgaria resurrected their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-1 victory in Luxembourg last night. Bulgaria, who lost their opening Group Five game to Israel, had their substitute Ivan Vassilev sent off after an hour.
