Birmingham City defender Dion Sanderson has taken to Twitter to reflect on his side’s latest victory in the Championship.
The Blues extended their current winning run to three games last night by beating Bristol City at St Andrew’s.
Sanderson started for Birmingham in this particular clash but was withdrawn at half-time after suffering a heavy fall.
Harlee Dean was brought on as Sanderson’s replacement and the defender went on to help his side keep a clean-sheet in this fixture.
Riley McGree opened the scoring for the Blues in the 14th minute of the clash.
Following the break, Scott Hogan netted his fifth goal of the season before Gary Gardner added a third for his side.
As a result of this particular triumph, Birmingham moved up to 13th in the Championship standings.
Set to face Reading on Saturday, the Blues will be determined to seal all three points in-front of their supporters.
Reflecting on Birmingham’s latest display on Twitter, Sanderson has admitted that it was a great win for his side whilst he also praised his team-mates for their individual performances.
The defender posted: “Great win tonight under the lights.
“Gutted to come off at half time but the lads were unbelievable.
Great win tonight under the lights 🦾 gutted to come off at half time but the lads were unbelievable 🔥🔥🔥 clean sheet 🙅🏾♂️🙅🏾♂️🙅🏾♂️

When you consider that Sanderson has managed to produce some eye-catching displays for Birmingham since joining the club on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer transfer window, the club’s supporters will be hoping that the defender will be able to make a swift recovery from the issue that he sustained last night.
Before being substituted in yesterday’s fixture, Sanderson managed to make four interceptions whilst he also produced five clearances at St Andrew’s (as per WhoScored).
Currently averaging a respectable WhoScored match rating of 6.79 in the second-tier, the defender will be hoping to help his side push on at this level when he is fit enough to feature.
By using the momentum gained from their victory over the Robins to their advantage this weekend, Birmingham could potentially produce another impressive performance in their showdown with Reading.
