Birmingham City defeated Rotherham United at St Andrews this afternoon. In the end it was Clayton Donaldson's goal that proved vital, as Birmingham won the game 2-1. Matt Derbyshire grabbed one back for the Yorkshire side, but it was Robert Tesche who opened the scoring for Brum.
It was the Nottingham Forest loanee's first goal for the club since joining from the City Ground on loan until the end of the season.
He was a regular under Pearce but Freedman wanted to freshen things up at the club and he has not played since he became boss.
He was excellent today, although he did fail to net two late efforts in the game that the Birmingham fans wish he had of netted - it would have made for a much easier and less stressful end to the game.
His deal at Forest ends at the end of the season. He only signed on a one year deal after his release from Hamburg in the summer.
But his form for Birmingham has been impressive since he made the move and they might snap him up in the summer if he is free.
Here is how the Birmingham fans reacted to the Nottingham Forest player's performance...

First time i've seen Blues play in months. Tesche is a superb player. Dyer was unfairly treated, thought he was fine today #bcfc— Elliott Griffiths (@ElliottBCFC) April 3, 2015
