Leicester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson backs ref on Mills red

Leicester manager Sven-Goran Eriksson backed the decision to send off his captain Matt Mills for a two-footed lunge as the Foxes' seven-match unbeaten run in the Championship was ended at Birmingham.

The East Midlands side had not conceded since 10 September before Marlon King put Birmingham ahead from the spot following Andy King's foul on Jean Beausejour.

After Mills' dismissal, Chris Wood beat Kasper Schmeichel from a narrow angle to complete victory for the home side. Leicester are now 13th in the table, just two places ahead of improving Birmingham.
