It’s payback time

Andy Munro on Blues’ final-day win over Fulham.

We’ve lost count of the times that Fulham have stymied Blues, from FA Cup semi finals to Premier League survival, so it was fitting that we put all that to bed with a convincing win.

From the off, Blues set about the ‘in form’ Fulham and it was no surprise when a great run from young Wes Harding saw Jutkeiwicz (persona non grata under a certain Steve Cotterill) head home. Even better was a second headed goal from Harlee Deane, although whatever he was doing in the opposition penalty area must remain a mystery.

Fulham looked a very ordinary outfit as Blues bullied them mercilessly, winning every 50:50 ball. The whole thing was personified by Wes Harding chasing back thirty yards to dispossess the much vaunted Sessegnon.

However, even with other results going for us, this is Blues we are talking about and when Fulham got one back there were a few tremors amongst the faithful until Che Adams coolly slotted home to seal the win. If a relegation haunted fixture can be seen as memorable then this has to be it, with a passionate capacity crowd roaring the Blues onto an unlikely but merited win.
