Birmingham City fell short of a result on Saturday’s game against Blackpool which marks the end for their five game unbeaten run since the arrival of new boss Gary Rowett.
Although you cannot expect to go unbeaten every game, but I suppose what makes this loss frustrating for Blues fans is the fact that it was to bottom of the league Blackpool and former manager Lee Clark's first win in charge. This is in no disrespect to Blackpool but perhaps Birmingham need to dust themselves off and get ready to go again come next Saturday against Reading at home.
Gary Rowett has made a brilliant impression in around the club since his arrival and is continuing to do so, it is a shame to see the unbeaten run come to an end but as previously stated – you are always going to lose games.
With all credit to Lee Clark also as he didn’t have one bad word to say about his former club, in fact, quite the contrary, he had nothing but positive things to say when being interviewed by press during the build up to the game earlier on in the week.
There was much anticipation for this game throughout the week as both managers offered their opinions to the media. Gary Rowett had urged his players to stick together and put in a good performance for the travelling fans.
Despite the result, there were still plenty of positives to take from the game as all of Rowett’s players are starting to now gel together and look like an attacking threat going forward with key players like David Cotterill and Demaria Gray on the wings.
Hopefully, Rowett’s blues will be able to bounce back come the Reading game next week in front of the home fans, roll on match day and come on Blues!
