Jefferson Montero issues message after Birmingham City’s latest display



Birmingham City winger Jefferson Montero has taken to Twitter to reveal his thoughts on the club’s 1-1 draw with Millwall.

The 30-year-old, who joined the Blues on a season-long loan deal in the summer from Swansea City, was brought on as a second-half substitute by caretaker head coach Pep Clotet.

Impressive during his cameo display, Montero helped Birmingham secure a point against Gary Rowett’s side at St Andrew’s.

Having failed to win any of their previous four games in the Championship, the Blues had a point to prove to their supporters at the weekend.

However, a slow start to the clash by the Blues eventually resulted in Millwall taking the lead in the second-half via a stunning strike from Shaun Williams.

The midfielder fired past goalkeeper Connal Trueman following neat work from Jed Wallace who proved to be a menace for the Lions throughout the clash.

Undeterred by this setback, Birmingham levelled up proceedings in the 79th minute as Jake Clarke-Salter headed in his first goal for the club.

Jude Bellingham then went close to sealing all three points for the Blues as his effort drifted just wide of the post.

Reflecting on the clash, Montero tweeted: “One important point, nobody said it would be easy.

“We keep going.”

Birmingham will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Championship when they head to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday to face Reading.

The Verdict

Whilst it is fair to say that Montero has yet to hit top-form for the Blues this season, his recent cameo displays have been relatively impressive.

Did Curtis Davies play for Birmingham City?

Given that Birmingham are currently struggling for form in the Championship, Clotet may find it beneficial to hand the winger a start this weekend against Reading.

If Montero is able to deliver the goods for his side, he could emerge as a pivotal player in the second-half of the 2019/20 campaign at St Andrew’s.
