Birmingham City eventually fell short of even a point on Saturday afternoon as Derby County edged them 3-2 in what was a very entertaining game between the pair at Pride Park in the Championship.
The Blues have been fairly decent so far under Pep Clotet this year in the second tier but have lost their last two games on the spin, leaving them four points off of the play-off places.
Even so, they will feel as though they have a team capable of being dark-horses for the top six this year, providing that they find a bit more consistency.
One man that has shown such an attribute in his performances so far this year, though, is Ivan Sunjic with the summer signing putting on a number of decent displays in the middle of the park.
And, indeed, his fine goal during the game on Saturday, as well as his overall performance, led plenty of Blues fans to discuss his showing on Twitter.
Let’s take a look, then, at some of the praise he received on the social media platform…
That man Sunjic is another level #BCFC

We’ll be so lucky to keep hold of Sunjic at the end of the year, the kid is different class #bcfc

An under hit pass, slip & penalty miss away from a good result yesterday. Third goal all at sea defensively but we could see they were rattled went flat out for the win and got caught! Crowley & Sunjic magnificent #BCFC
