‘A bit different, I like it’ – Plenty of Birmingham City fans react as team news for Blackburn clash emerges



Birmingham City have made just the one change to their starting lineup for their away clash at Blackburn Rovers, with Chuks Aneke coming in as a like-for-like replacement for Scott Hogan.

It is presumed the latter is fit considering he takes his place on the bench alongside Lukas Jutkiewicz, leaving Aneke with a great opportunity to stake his claim for a regular starting spot.

The other big headline to come from this news is that teenager Jordan James retains his place in the middle of the park alongside Ivan Sunjic, with Ryan Woods returning to the bench as he makes his way back from a suspension.

Riley McGree also keeps his starting in the starting eleven despite being nailed on to return to US-side Charlotte on the expiration of his loan spell in January, with Lee Bowyer prioritising points over the long term.

The Blues will be desperate to bounce back following their stoppage-time concession against Cardiff City last weekend, snatching two points away from them at the very end as they failed to redeem themselves for a poor defensive showing at Millwall in their match prior to their clash with the Bluebirds.

However, they face a daunting task as they take on a high-flying Blackburn side. Tony Mowbray’s men have gone unbeaten in their last six league matches and have kept a clean sheet in their last four, presenting a tough challenge to someone even as experienced as Troy Deeney.

But if anyone can break through their defence, it would be the ex-Watford captain in his current form.

Whether he can be the difference-maker remains to be seen, but we do have the latest reaction from a selection of Birmingham fans to their starting lineup.
