Nathan Redmond opened the scoring with a fine solo effort in the 24th minute before a Damien Delaney headed own goal doubled their lead eight minutes later.

Palace looked resurgent at the start of the second half but Birmingham weathered the storm, with Ravel Morrison adding a third on 64 minutes with a good finish from the edge of the area.

And the victory was sealed in style five minutes later.

Mile Jedinak cut down Morrison 20 yards out and Ferguson, on loan from Newcastle United, stepped up to curl a delightful curling free-kick past Julián Speroni and into the top corner.
