On Saturday morning. I said I was feeling hopeful and my hopes were fulfilled that afternoon. Scoring early in the game meant we had something to lose so I felt nervous for most of the time. It would have only taken one lapse in concentration by our players or one great move from theirs and Nottingham Forest could have equalised. But this time, it was Blues who scored right at the end. Che Adams scored from the penalty spot in time added on to extend his scoring run to five games.
On the way to the game I’d wondered if I’d put on too many layers but once I got seated in the Kop, I was grateful for every bit of clothing I had on. The wind was cold and biting, but the football kept me warm. All the Birmingham City players played well and the referee kept the game flowing with not too many stops. Also our new signing, Kerim Mrabti, came off the bench to play for a few minutes. I was glad I’d gone but also glad to get home afterwards and have a hot drink.
