Andy Munro watches as Blues beat the Albion.
This was another great high-pressing performance from Blues and that style of play has got to be the way forward with a solid 4-4-2 where everybody knows their job.
Hannibal Mejbri scored the first goal with a wicked free-kick. If anybody deserved to net one it was the all-action Hannibal and he was unlucky not to get a second before half-time. The second came from Krystian Bielik, whose performance and excellent header showed that despite recent doubts his ‘head’ is back in the right place .
At the other end the Blues defence was back to its meanest with Dion Sanderson outstanding and John Ruddy, despite a couple of wayward kicks, was as safe as the proverbial houses.
I have to put a word in also for the Juke, who tirelessly led the line and was a constant source of trouble for the Albion defence, as was the unselfish running of Scott Hogan.
Overall, this was a magnificent performance to rubberstamp Blues’ recent turnaround in fortunes.
