Wood, 19, signed on loan from West Brom in the summer, took his tally to four in two matches with a close-range finish in the 29th minute, a clinical strike from outside the penalty area midway through the second half and a late header.

Millwall, nudged down into 14th place by the Blues' big climb, were not without their own chances, especially in the first period, but Wood's first goal settled Birmingham and his second proved decisive for Chris Hughton's side, who secured their second straight home league win.

Wood completed a memorable day for Blues fans by rounding off the scoring in the final minute.
