Keeping right on

Andy Munro watches Blues draw at Preston.

Off the pitch, Blues fans are campaigning to get the owners out but, if he were alive, Don Quixote would probably stand a better chance of knocking down the Eiffel Tower.

Meanwhile, on the pitch the were desperate to halt a losing run and thanks to some late substitutes, they salvaged a deserved point when the much-maligned Scott Hogan turned in a cross from the almost equally maligned Ryan Woods.

The defence certainly looked better with new arrival Teden Mengi in it and the return of the commanding presence that is Marc Roberts also helped but on the negative side kristian Pedersen looks pedestrian as a centre-back while Jeremie Bela and Maxime Colin look ill at ease as wing backs,the former defensively and the latter offensively.

In front of them Gary Gardner has yet to get his mojo back and Ivan Sunjic continues to whirl around like a dervish but unfortunately with the same measure of co-ordination. So yet again it was left to young Jordan James to shine the brightest and, in fairness to Woods he had a decent cameo when he came on.

However, probably the brightest point was the skills and pace of Onel Hernandez with the pace element being a previous element sadly lacking in the Blues recent line-ups. Alongside him, the Juke put in his usual shift and hopefully will reap just rewards over the next few games.

Let’s hope the midweek match against the mighty Fulham will leave our slightly restored but fragile confidence reasonably intact.
