Blues draw some comfort

Andy Munro watches Blues draw at Wigan.

It should have been three points, with a missed penalty and the woodwork rattled three times, but it wasn’t to be. However, the point was more valuable to Blues than it was to Wigan, by keeping a gap between us and the bottom three.

In essence, the performance could be described as ‘middling’ with the highlights being good performances from Harlee Dean and the returning Auston Trusty, Juninho Bacuna back to his mercurial best, Jordan Graham putting in a solid shift and John Ruddy taking çrosses like the proverbial apples off the tree.

On the minus side, Maxime Colin had his hands full and both Chong and Chang (try saying that after a few drinks!) played in fits and starts. Whilst Reda Khedra’s appearance wasn’t a game-changer, next week in another must win game against Rotherham, surely he must start to bring some much needed pace and danger up top – something we are sadly lacking at the moment with Scott Hogan firing blanks.

Either way, it looks like we are heading towards another nail biting finish but barring points deduction let’s hope that we don’t leave it until the last game.
