Birmingham City were beaten 4-1 by Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup last night.
Birmingham City fans have raved about David Stockdale’s performance for them against Huddersfield Town last night.
Birmingham were beaten 4-1 by the Terriers in their FA Cup clash, but Stockdale put in a great performance.
The Blues stopper made a series of superb stops to ensure that the match went to extra-time, but he was powerless to resist in the end, as Huddersfield progressed.
David Wagner’s side were impressive at St. Andrews, but Stockdale’s performance did not go unnoticed.
Stockdale deserves a knighthood, a peerage and a Bronx hat. Unreal saves.— Nικος Ξυδιας (@Greekbluenose) February 6, 2018
Stockdale has been an amazing signing for us. Taking the piss again with save after save. Dread to think where we'd be without his input on and off the pitch. #bcfc— Rob Glover (@robgl0ver) February 6, 2018
May have conceded four in the end, but David Stockdale was unbelievable tonight. Thought Jota was good when he come on too.— Kane Styles (@KaneGStyles) February 6, 2018
Many will disagree, as they always do, but Blues were poor tonight, IMO.— Rıchard Lum (@LumRichie) February 6, 2018
Stockdale, Dean, Roberts and Morrison put in a shift. Lowe and Gardner were bad. Ché didn't look bothered once he scored.
No urgency whatsoever, apart from Jota who got the crowd excited.
Birmingham fans will be hoping that Stockdale can continue his strong form, as they have a derby match against Aston Villa at the weekend.
Steve Cotterill’s side have improved of late, but they are sure to be put to the test by their rivals at Villa Park.
Stockdale is likely to be a busy man on Sunday, as Villa are proving to be one of the Championship’s leading contenders for promotion.
If Birmingham are able to pull off an upset against their local rivals, they could move seven points clear of the relegation zone, which would represent big progress in recent weeks.
