‘Absolutely brilliant’ – Many Birmingham City fans react to influential display of ace



A number of Birmingham City supporters have been hailing the influence that Ivan Sanchez had for the Blues during the second half of their 2-1 win at Derby County on Saturday.

Lee Bowyer’s side continued their improvements and continued to pull well away from the relegation zone by turning around the game in the second half at Derby after going 1-0 behind. The Blues managed to show a lot of spirit to come back into the game and also quality thanks to some of the changes made during the second 45 minutes.

One of those changes was Sanchez, and the attacker managed to make a major difference with his quality and ability to make things happen in the final third. He produced an excellent delivery for Lukas Jutkiewicz to get his second goal of the game and what turned out to be the winning goal. It was a display that would have shown Bowyer the qualities he can bring to the side.

In the second half, Sanchez managed to produce one key pass, create one big chance and also complete one successful dribble, as well as making two tackles and also winning three duels (Sofascore). He was heavily involved in the Blues’ turn around that now sees them secure in the Championship for another campaign.

Many Birmingham supporters were quick to heap praise on the forward’s performance at Derby and keen to stress that he should now be considered as a starter by Bowyer.
