Birmingham City fans react to Jacques Maghoma display at Norwich City

The Blues' poor Championship run continued with a 3-1 loss at Carrow Road and some fans on Twitter were highly critical of one player.

Birmingham City have slipped to ninth in the Championship table after succumbing to a 3-1 defeat away at Norwich City on Friday night.

The Blues were hoping to end a three-game winless run at Carrow Road but the results means they now have two defeats and two draws from their last four league games (Transfermarkt).

A frenzied first half saw Teemu Pukki give Norwich the lead in the 13th minute, but Birmingham levelled moments later with Che Adams rifling home from Jota's through-ball.

 

However, the hosts regained the lead when Mario Vrancic found the bottom corner from range, before Tom Trybull headed home at a corner to make it 3-1, the eventual final score.

It was clearly not a good day at the office for the West Midlanders, whose form is deserting them right when they would want to be applying pressure on the top six.

Some Birmingham fans reacted on Twitter to the performance and result, with midfielder Jacques Maghoma coming under scrutiny for his display against Daniel Farke's side:

Birmingham return to action on Tuesday, January 29 when they visit Swansea City.
