A number of Birmingham City supporters have reacted to the influential performance Ryan Woods following the Blues’ 2-0 win at home to Derby County on Friday night.
The Blues proved to be too strong for Derby on the night with Lee Bowyer setting his side up to press high up the field and pile pressure on the Rams’ defenders when playing out from the back.
That tactic worked perfectly and the Blues were able to force numerous errors out of the visitors. It was that plan that managed to unlock Derby’s defence and cause them make a mistake for the all-important opening goal.
Woods was key to keeping Birmingham on the front foot and ensuring that the likes of Ravel Morrison and Tom Lawrence could not get on the ball in the midfield area and make things happen going forwards.
In total, the midfielder managed to win five duels, make one tackle and two interceptions. While Woods was also able to complete three successful dribbles to get the Blues up the field and also maintained an 83% passing accuracy.
Are each of these 18 celebrities a Birmingham City supporter or not?
Many Birmingham supporters were quick to hail Woods’ contribution to the win against Derby with one fan commenting on how good he has been since arriving at St Andrews this summer.
Here, we take a look at some of the best reactions on social media…

Chong again class in midfield along with Sunjic and Woods who were everywhere. Bela adapting so well in his left wing-back role. Definitely got the basis of a good team here #bcfc

What a terrific result. Not a classic but there is something resilient and absolutely committed this Blues team. Ryan Woods was outstanding, Chong was heroic, Dean & Robbo won every header and Bela & Hogan so deserved their goals. Oh and of course – Troy. 😍 #BCFC
