Birmingham City fans react on Twitter to Kyle Lafferty's performance against Brighton

Birmingham City have signed Kyle Lafferty on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season.

Kyle Lafferty impressed on his debut for Birmingham City last night, after he opened the scoring for them against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Lafferty has joined Birmingham on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season, and it did not take the Northern Ireland international look to make an impression at St. Andrews.

The 28-year-old showed a poacher’s instinct to capitalise on an error from Brighton stopper David Stockdale and tap home from close range.

Birmingham have lacked a striker all season, but their supporters seem to believe that Lafferty has the ability to enhance the quality of their options up-front.

Lafferty’s goal was not enough to send Birmingham to victory, as they let their lead slip against Chris Hughton’s side.

Brighton showed why they are challenging for promotion as goals from Lewis Dunk and Connor Goldson turned the match around in their favour.

Birmingham’s defeat surely ends their chances of achieving promotion, as Gary Rowett’s side are now 11 points adrift of the play off spaces.
