After their 4-2 loss to local rivals Aston Villa, Birmingham fans on Twitter managed to reserve some praise for their 29-year-old striker Lukas Jutkiewicz.

The 6ft 1in front man opened the scoring at Villa Park just before the hour-mark as he ghosted in at the back post from a corner and controlled a left-footed volley into the back of the net.

The goal was Jutkiewicz’s 10th of the season so far in just 18 Championship games as the Englishman continues what is surely his best ever run of form.

Unfortunately for the Blues that was about as good as it would get in the Second City derby though, and two goals in two minutes from Jonathan Kodija and Jack Grealish ensured that the home side went into the break ahead.

In the second-half, Tammy Abraham put Villa 3-1 up from the penalty spot before Birmingham left-back Kristian Pedersen scored his first goal for the club to make it 3-2 with over half-an-hour to go.

It was Villa though who pushed on and Alan Hutton’s fine solo goal secured victory for Dean Smith’s side.

Birmingham fans were still clearly impressed with Jutkiewicz though. Check out some of the best reaction below.
