Birmingham City won a game, after losing 7 League games plus a Cup game. And it wasn’t an ugly win; it was beautiful. Blues had 8 corners, 8 shots on target and scored from 3 of them. Stockdale only had to make one save. It was hard to pick a man of the match because the whole team played well. Apart from Gardener’s injury, everything went well. And, in his interview on BluesTV, Garry Monk said that injury was a tight hamstring and may not be too serious.
They played in atrocious conditions, below freezing, a biting wind and swirling snow at times. When I left the stadium after the game, it felt like walking into a gale. But I went home with a smile on my face.
