Birmingham City will be without Troy Deeney for the next month after the striker suffered a thigh injury.
Lee Bowyer’s side are on a very tough run at the moment, with defeat to Plymouth in the FA Cup last time out meaning they have won just one in nine.
Injuries haven’t helped the boss, with several influential players out, and another has been added to that list after Bowyer confirmed that Deeney is going to miss a month.
Even though the 33-year-old hasn’t been prolific since joining his boyhood club, he has been a regular in the team and will be missed.
Are these 22 Birmingham City stats real or fake?
As you would expect, the news hasn’t gone down well with the Blues fans, particularly as the side are preparing for a very hectic run of games, with Deeney potentially missing the next eight.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the setback from the support on Twitter…
