‘Different level’, ‘Such a baller’ – Many Birmingham City fans react to 22-year-old’s performance vs Stoke



A number of Birmingham City supporters have been hailing the impact that Riley McGree managed to have for the Blues in the second half of their vital 2-0 win against Stoke City.

Lee Bowyer’s side headed into the game looking to make it three successive wins at St Andrews and claim another massive three points that could lift them further clear of the relegation zone. The Blues managed to edge a tight first half and then took control of the game for large periods of the second 45 minutes to ensure they claimed another crucial win.

The decision was made at half-time by Bowyer to bring off Alen Halilovic in place for McGree and the 22-year-old managed to make a real difference for Birmingham in the second 45 minutes. He was very direct when he got the ball and was always trying to make something happen in the final third. The  Charlotte FC loanee was heavily involved in the second with his good effort kept out only as far as Lukas Jutkiewicz.
