Proving a point

Andy Munro comments on Blues’ 1-1 draw at Huddersfield.

It was good to see Blues secure a well-earned point on the road against a generally in-form Huddersfield team.

It wasn’t easy, with Conall Trueman making a couple of outstanding saves and more importantly not making any howlers. On that topic, I still feel it’s harsh to pillory Camp, who is still a decent keeper and his great saves to mistakes ratio is still well in credit. However, it was good to see Truman (and not Stockdale) get his chance and take it.

Despite conceding a goal young Clarke-Salter did a more than decent job in defence as did his fellow defenders. However, we didn’t quite have the fluidity in midfield that we normally show but that is often going to happen when teams press, trying to stop us pLaying the excellent football that we have been showing at home.

Up front, it was good to see Pep show some bravery by not only playing a winger but playing two up top. Bela will take time to settle and gel with the Juke but there’s another good partnership hopefully in the offing. Additionally, if he can remain injury free, Montero is a tired defender’s nightmare when he’s brought on and at times he looks unplayable.

However, another stern test awaits us with Gary Monk’s men at Fortress Hillsborough but with our next opponents at home, Millwall, getting a few wins, no game is an easy game in the Championship.

Either way, all things considered, it’s been a decent campaign so far as we look to bed in both players and systems.
