Birmingham City fans were fuming with Wes Harding against Bolton Wanderers

Garry Monk’s in-form side welcomed a hapless Bolton Wanders to St Andrew’s on Tuesday evening and, perhaps rather predictably, the visitors recorded their first win on the road since August with a 1-0 win.

Football is a funny old game. Just at the moment in which Birmingham were beginning to hit top form and edging towards the play-off places, they lost what appeared to be a routine win on paper.

Relegation-threatened Bolton were without a victory away from home since they beat Reading 1-0 on August 18, 2018, so it was no surprise that the Birmingham fans were furious in the aftermath of proceedings.

Plenty of fans took to social media to vent their frustration and a handful of individual players came in for strong criticism on Twitter, one of whom was Wes Harding.

The 22-year-old has needed to be patient this season while waiting for a first-team opportunity, but he has become a regular in recent weeks at right-back.

But Harding, a natural centre-back by trade, has struggled to make an impact on the overlap, and his lack of technical quality is beginning to frustrate plenty of supporters, with many now calling for him to be dropped for the upcoming fixture against Blackburn Rovers.

Here’s what the Birmingham fans had to say about Harding’s performance against Bolton on Tuesday:
