Birmingham City fans on Twitter have been reacting after their team was dealt a huge boost in their bid for Sky Bet Championship survival.
FT – Blues 1 (Morrison 42) Sheffield United 1 (Stevens 38)
— Birmingham City FC (@BCFC) April 10, 2019
The Blues hosted a Sheffield United team that started the day in the automatic promotion spots on Wednesday evening at St. Andrew’s, getting a 1-1 draw out of the game.
The result was made all the more impressive by the fact that Garry Monk’s men came from a goal down, captain Michael Morrison cancelling out Enda Stevens’ 38th-minute opener just four minutes later.
Birmingham now find themselves six points above the drop zone in 17th and virtually safe despite being deducted nine points for breaching profitability and sustainability rules.
And supporters, for the most part, were delighted with the outcome of the tricky test when replying to a full-time tweet from the club’s official account, in spite of one blaming goalkeeper Lee Camp for costing them the three points.

Imagine what possibly could have been if Mahoney stayed on instead of Mags and we thought about playing football on the floor for the last 20 mins
