Birmingham fans adamant that Jake Clarke-Salter should start this weekend

Always nice to have some plans in place.

As things stand, Harlee Dean is set to be suspended for the Blues’ upcoming game with Fulham and possibly beyond having been sent off in the game against Cardiff City last Saturday.

Whilst the club said that they would appeal the decision, Pep Clotet and his men need to get themselves in position to replace the captain, and they aren’t short of options.

However there is one player that the fans believe should take Dean’s place, and that’s young Chelsea loanee Jake Clarke-Salter.

The defender has found minutes incredibly hard to come by this season, with his only appearance in the league coming in the defeat to Wigan Athletic back at the start of October.

And whilst he wasn’t on the right side of that result, fans believed that he deserves a second chance and this Saturday’s match would be the perfect opportunity for him to show fans what, if anything, they’re missing.

Debating who should replace the 28-year-old, here’s what a host of supporters said.

Should Bajrami be considered for the first team?

Yes

Yes

No

The question is, will Clotet listen to the fans on this occasion?
