As I predicted we get a point at Birmingham City
On a dreadful rainy and very windy afternoon we started off poorly and they scored in the 13th minute. I then thought we would lose two or three nil, but in the 17th minute from a corner an unmarked Pinnock at the back post headed our equaliser. Both keepers made some good saves and each side hit the post but the game ended 1-1. For the first 80 minutes our midfield was non-existent and we were muscled off the ball the whole game. In the first half we committed ourselves in the tackle too many times and were mainly playing a long ball over the top (probably because there was no midfield player coming back to pick up the ball) but Watkins was well marshalled all game. I have never seen Benrahma give away the ball so many times.
