This one was a must win, a game that could possibly set the tone for the rest of the season.

And right from the off, Barnsley looked hungrier than their hosts, snapping into tackles and creating some promising positions – everything Blues didn’t do.

Ollie McBurnie’s opener was the start of a comfortable win. The striker scored both – and saw his penalty saved in between.

The Blues fans blamed Steve Cotterill and, judging by his post match comments, Cotterill blames the fans.

How a manager can claim his players are ‘scared to death’ to play at home is baffling especially given the backing and the patience shown this term.

‘We want Cotterill out’ was the theme tune of the afternoon and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to fight his corner.

The fans have seen far too many idiotic interviews, negative tactics and lame excuses. Too much water has gone under the bridge.

As far as the fans are concerned, his position is untenable.

With Blues back in the bottom three, surely the decision has to be made sooner rather than later.
